Yes, You Can Minimize Workplace Conflict

There’s conflict in every workplace. It’s inevitable. Colleagues with different communication styles working together every day are bound to have friction sometimes. Surely you’ve seen this in your own workplace.

For instance, consider the “no-fluff” boss. “I need this report on my desk by 10:00,” she might announce Monday morning. The employee, however, had started his day with a cheerful “Good morning! How was your weekend?” to his co-workers. With his softer communication style, he might react negatively to his boss. Neither style is right or wrong, but it’s easy for someone to misunderstand another’s intent. That’s how conflict arises.

In your workplace:

  • Is there an employee who repeatedly offends others?
  • Is there an employee who’s often mad?
  • Do team members fail to effectively convey ideas to one another?
  • Are employees just not getting along?

Let us help.

Tell us about the conflict your workplace is experiencing. If you can’t pinpoint the root of the problem, we’ll help you identify it. Then we’ll establish an action plan. We might recommend:

Personality assessments. These assessments shed light on the group’s culture and the tendencies of the individuals. You can even compare the priorities of two individuals and uncover their potential communication roadblocks. You’ll have a roadmap to success, with advice on how the individuals can best work with each other.

Coaching or training. Our on-site and virtual workshops let you learn how to achieve smoother interactions, at your convenience. If you prefer to run a workshop yourself, we can provide the necessary materials.

Your customized action plan is designed to eliminate dysfunctional communication that creates roadblocks. Our goal is to deliver the “aha” moments that come from employees learning to understand themselves and one another. There’s no better way to minimize conflict in your workplace.
