Conflict is uncomfortable
It goes without saying that almost all of us find conflict uncomfortable. We prefer to get along well with people. This is particularly true at work. Most of us want to go to work, do a good job and go home feeling happy and ready to deal with whatever is at home.
Conflict interrupts those plans.
From an individual’s perspective, conflict can be anything from a less than ideal situation, to one that impacts their whole life and wellness. Unresolved conflict at work can, at its worst, quite literally derail someone’s whole life.
