Conflict & Change Order information

  • What do we mean by the term "conflict"? Should conflict be eliminated from the workplace? Conflict is simply a "differing of ideas"; people see things differently. Conflict exists in all aspects of human behaviour and is a natural part of the human condition. Research shows that it is from the sharing of differing viewpoints (conflict) that creativity unfolds. The question is;"How should one view conflict and how should one deal with it?" For the manner in which one responds to and manages its dynamics determines the success of the enterprise.
