Workplace Conflict And Resolutions

Healthy Disagreements Make the World a Not-So-Boring Place & Serves A Purpose In The Process Of Workplace Conflict Resolution.

How do you differentiate a workplace conflict from a healthy disagreement? When does a healthy disagreement begin to spiral into a nasty conflict?

Workplace conflict and resolutions are a part of doing business and in the real world, are unavoidable. Many workplace conflicts begin simply because people will always naturally disagree on how, when, why, where, (etc., etc.) to do just about anything. However, when differences of opinion are accompanied by too much emotional commitment to one point versus another, the resulting conflict can be damaging.

Workplace conflicts offer many benefits if we can resolve them productively. Healthy disagreement can have a positive, generating effect. As people are forced to work through a problem to its solution, they get a chance to better understand the point of view of others. Successful resolution of small workplace conflicts can diffuse the possibility of more serious conflicts and result in better working relationships.
