4 Sources of Conflict comprise most of the conflicts you’ll encounter in your work and personal life. Classifying the conflict you are managing and then accessing the suggested approaches will make navigating conflict much easier for you.
Managing Conflict Can Be Challenging
If you find conflict challenging to deal with, you’re not alone. Most people, and especially leaders find managing conflict challenging at some point in their careers.
Understanding the sources of conflict (and the strategies to resolve each of them) will help you be more confident, comfortable, and successful in managing conflict with your peers, with your staff, within your team, with your boss, with your vendors, and most importantly with your customers.
The 4 Sources of Conflict PowerPoint below will support you in mastering conflict management.
Once you know the source of a conflict, this tool can help you:
- Immediately diffuse your emotions about the conflict
- Increase your understanding of the other party’s position
- Provide a roadmap for resolving the conflict
Reducing the Stress of Dealing with Conflict
Using this tool will also greatly reduce the anxiety you experience when you are required to intervene in a conflict.
Conflict is often stressful because it is complex and emotion-provoking. In addition, the stakes in these interactions are often high. Without an interpretation tool, managing conflict has many unknowns and is fraught with pitfalls. Having a tool to interpret conflict and a roadmap to resolve it, will be empowering for you.
Below is a PowerPoint presentation to support you in applying this highly effective conflict management tool.
