Main titles

  • Conflict in the workplace tends to escalate when it is not addressed.
  • Superficially optimistic appearances can lead to discord, as denial leads to mistrust.
  • Thru avoiding conflict we undermine teamwork and communication.

Steps to be taken in order to lead through conflict:

  1. Review the typical communication process in the organization
  2. Be aware of how you usually avoid conflict. If you catch yourself avoiding conflict by being passive, for example, you will be more able to address it.
  3. Have the team ask open ended questions in order to plan a shared outcome.
  4. Offer solutions and wait for feedback.
