#HRchat: Workplace Conflict – The Threat is Real
A conflict is more than an argument, but the outcome can still be positive.
Join Tim Baker and the team at 12:30-1:30 ET on Tuesday, May 17th, for the next #HRchat Twitter chat to discuss what workplace conflict looks like and how we can support our people to develop strong resolution skills.
Most of us have had arguments or disagreements in the workplace. However, a conflict is different. It is a situation in which one or both parties perceive a threat (whether or not the threat is real). Conflict triggers strong emotions which can affect our ability to resolve. Nevertheless, there can be positive outcomes to conflict resolution, such as a relationship of trust.
