If you're new to a team that's weak in this area, one tactic is to advance a faulty idea or argument yourself and see if gets challenged. If not, then find somone on the team to challenge your weak idea and show the rest of the them that (a) what a healthy debate and acquiesence looks like, and (b) that nobody's ideas are beyond challenging. I've seen it termed in defence circles as "Good ideas out-rank everybody."

Sometimes debates will reveal questions that need answering in order to find the best way forward. These questions can allocated so as to challenge individual team members causing them to grow in their effort to find answers.

And I'll take my Pepsi straight ThankYouVeryMuch. :)
