Handling Conflict

Conflict is disagreement between two or more people with strongly held views and is unavoidable when people interact at work. Conflict is generally regarded as negative, but without it, much of our work creativity would be lost. Conflict needs to be managed and channelled in positive ways, to enhance individual interactions, teamwork and organisational harmony.

In general, people tend to avoid conflict as much as possible, but when it cannot be avoided, tend towards anger, harsh words, withdrawal, lack of cooperation etc.

Unmanaged conflict can result in serious organisation poisoning and high individual stress levels.
