Conflicts are Inevitable

Conflicts are a predictable fact of life in every type of human interaction. Conflict management is, or should be, a core leadership competency. Arrogance or ignorance of conflicting issues may encourage disputes that can disrupt, damage and sometimes destroy teams or organizations. Confrontations and harassment lower performance and decrease productivity.

Conflict management involves analysis, diagnosis, intervention, resolution and prevention. These can be applied by executives, managers and supervisors in everyday organizational situations, consistently with a defined corporate culture, to ensure productivity and performance.

Categories of Human Conflict

People are both social and territorial, and will seek appropriate ways to increase advantage over other people. Expect people to be sociable to the limits of their perceived benefits. Expect people to become combative if they may lose control over things that they identify with.

      Things: land, resources, equipment, tools, machines, locations, decor
 Behaviors: habits, body movements, activities, communication styles
 Beliefs: definitions, predictions, assessments
 Values: preferences, evaluations, comparisons, hierarchies
 Identity: personalities, identifications, leaders, transferences
 Trans-personal: families, relationships, traditions, gods, communities, cultures

A systemic conflict management program can analyze these dimensions to find the real sources of conflict in a human system. The sources of conflict are rarely as obvious as the manifestations of conflict - the manifestations include fights, disputes, harassment and union conflicts.

Conflict Management

Conflict implies both motivation and desire for change. Unresolved conflicts cause chaos, whether inner conflict or between individuals or groups. Worse, if hidden or repressed, conflicts will likely become stronger and more damaging.
 Assessment: Interviews with stakeholders and selected third parties
 Analysis: Conflict Analysis Surveys; Finding origins
 Prognosis: Consequences of action; Consequences of inaction
 Intervention: Models of conflict; Problem solving; Appropriate behavior
 Resolution: Quick fixes; Arbitration; Mediation; Upper management involvement
      Prevention: Change strategies; Teamwork; Partnering; Joint agreements;
Internal consulting; Consensus building

Long-term conflict resolution focuses the motivation and harnesses the desire for change. Effective management can create integration opportunities that enlist both sides of a conflict. A third goal can be created to combine the values or qualities of both sides of a conflict ... within organizational objectives.
