This online Conflict Resolution in the Office discusses the techniques and strategies that can be used to limit the damage and disruption conflict can sometimes cause in the workplace. Conflict in the workplace is inevitable. Anytime two or more people come together, they will eventually disagree about something. While some conflict can be healthy, it is often an indication that there is something wrong. The good news about conflict is that it is usually based on caring. The more someone defends their point of view in an argument, the more they care. But if conflict is allowed to fester and grow without a resolution, it can lead to serious problems such as threats and even physical violence. This course shows employees that when difficult situations are dealt with in a calm and unemotional way, compromise and collaboration are possible... and a lot can be gained from resolving a conflict.
