Every organisation in which we work generates conflict. All organizations acknowledge that workplace conflict is inevitable, yet few of them recognize that learning how to prevent and resolve conflict is key to business success.
Poorly managed workplace conflict causes stress, low morale and decreased productivity. Even though our ability to collaborate with others, the making of agreements and the resolution of conflicts are core skills for working with others and for achieving business results, these skills are taught to very few of us. Instead of confronting conflict constructively and working beyond settlement of conflict to true resolution, many of us have become masters of avoidance, defensiveness or attack.
