Conflict Slows Down Productivity

Conflict is one of the most important and least understood factors in many businesses. Most important because it is often the root cause of performance issues that drive cost and other key performance indicators. Least understood because its true impact is hidden as people tolerate it, avoid it and compensate for it. While some people hate conflict, others embrace it. The key is to appreciate that conflict is inevitable, sometimes necessary and, in certain situations, a good thing. Conflict can also be destructive, costly and lead to stress-related wellness and well-being issues. It is critical for leaders to recognize and resolve destructive conflict and practice a method to deal with necessary conflict using it as a strategic tool to advance the business rather than regarding it as an unpleasant thing to be avoided. By understanding how each individual deals with conflict based on their intrinsic values, leaders can engage people in different problem solving, and/or conflict resolution roles.

The Color of Conflict & Stress builds on previous sessions and your own experience in using Ntrinsx on your job.

  • Understanding conflict - good and bad

  • How conflict gets started

  • How you deal with conflict (self-assessment)

  • How conflict works- conflict theory based on Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument
