You work in a complex and ever-evolving workplace. Conflict is a natural result of people having different points of view, values, and beliefs.
When left unaddressed, workplace conflict can lead to increased absenteeism, reduced productivity, resentment, hostility, and disengagement. When well-managed, conflict can enhance relationships, deepen understanding of self and others, and stimulate change and growth. Knowing that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to resolving conflicts, how do you help manage conflict effectively and support your colleagues who may be feeling frustrated, angry, or powerless? Successful leaders know how to manage conflict and set the tone for effective conflict resolution.
