FRICTION! Many of us would prefer to avoid conflict, and yet in any workplace, friction is inevitable, because we are
dealing with people and ideas. In preparation for writing this letter, I came across a definition of friction in the
Oxford Dictionary that really hit home: “conflict or animosity caused by clash of wills, temperaments, and opinions.”

to paper is actually a form of friction for me.
