MORE IDEAS FROM Why Avoiding Conflict Is the Wrong Move
Conflict avoidance is a type of people-pleasing behavior that typically arises from a deep rooted fear of upsetting others.
Many of these tendencies can be traced back to growing up in an environment that was dismissive or hypercritical:
Some form of conflict is a normal part of our personal and professional lives. While it’s OK to never be completely comfortable with confrontation, being able to resolve issues effectively means accepting it as a healthy part of communicating with others.
Disagreeing provides deeper understanding and makes it easier to connect with our friends, partners, and co-workers.
Conflict in the workplace is unavoidable. While you can try and avoid conflict (bad idea), you cannot escape conflict.
The ability to recognize conflict, understand the nature of conflict, and to be able to bring swift and just resolution to conflict will serve you well as a leader.
When it happens in the workplace, it can reduce productivity and make a dent in morale.
It takes on the shape that one person, or a group of people, frustrates or hampers another person or group's efforts at achieving a goal. This isn’t always done on purpose.
It empowers you to draw necessary boundaries with people that will allow you to get your needs met in relationships without alienating others and without letting resentment and anger creep in.
Many people mistake assertiveness for aggressiveness, but assertiveness is actually the balanced middle ground between aggressiveness and passivity.
