Is it possible to have a harmonious office environment free of conflict? When you have a group of individuals, conflict is inevitable. Disagreements usually come about from a clash of personalities or when ideas or opinions don’t match. Unresolved conflict never goes away; it just simmers until it blows up into a full-scale crisis. This book will help you to tackle conflict head-on without leaving any unresolved resentment or frustration. Because ignoring conflict won’t make it go away, this book will provide you with a proven method for managing conflict and negotiating resolutions.
