In the Midst of Battle

Conflict, in and of itself, is disruptive. It not only has the ability to rock the boat, but it can also make you feel as if you are caught in the same storm for a long time. Whether it’s big or small, conflict has the power to create chaos and leave destruction in its wake. Adding to the problem is that everyone deals with conflict in a different manner. Some run from it and others may seem like they thrive on it. It can be a recipe for disaster. Conflict can make you feel…

  • High and intense amounts of stress
  • Excluded and lonely
  • Like you’re in a state of dread
  • Exasperated and fatigued
  • Desperate to end conflict but unsure of how to do so
  • Caught between a rock and hard place

The Solution: Effectively Dealing With Workplace Conflict

The fact that conflict management and conflict resolution are common business terms should tell you that conflict within the workplace can be a pervasive issue. While the term conflict management focuses on mitigating the negative repercussions of the conflict, the term conflict resolution refers to a tactic that tries to end or resolve the conflict. Both approaches attempt to address the conflict because the effect that ongoing conflict has can spread like poison through an office. Stopping the spread is critical as conflict hinders productivity, team cohesion, and happiness at work.

The power of conflict is undeniable. So, what can you do? You can learn how to handle conflict effectively, thus stripping its power. That’s right – You can stop the spread of poison conflict can create quickly and efficiently. There are many benefits when conflict is managed positively. That means when you learn how to deal with conflict, you are able to make lemonade from lemons!
