Conflict, Definition & Meaning of Conflict :

     Conflicts, misunderstandings, and opposing points of view are an inevitable part of working life. Conflict may not occur on a daily basis, but when it happens it can be intense.
   All relationships, professional and personal, experience some kind of conflict. This is normal, natural, and sometimes necessary for growth and development. Some people feel it is best to avoid it.

   While this can be appropriate sometimes, it is not always recommended. Conflicts, misunderstandings, and opposing points of view are inevitable in the workplace, but it is possible to resolve it and preserve harmony.

   The main secret to conflict resolution is understanding not so much the conflict occurred, but how you can manage it when it does.


The Categories of Conflict :

   Broadly speaking, considering what most people fight about at work, conflicts have been clubbed into three categories :

     1. Not enough of something to go around. For example, lack of office resources or new computers.

     2. Different ways of seeing the world. For example, disagreements about who is responsible for handling certain tasks or functions in the office.

     3. Different goals that you, or a colleague or a boss wants to reach. For example, different views on how to spend professional development allowances.

Whatever the categories, the topic of conflict can be full of emotion, negativity, myths, and truths.


Four Myths about Conflict :

   The four myths about conflict are : 

     1. Conflict at work means that there is something seriously wrong with the company. When handled effectively, it can help people meet their goals and objectives within a team or a department. Constructive conflict even allows you to create a new solution by incorporating ideas from several points of view.

     2. Conflict means communication has come to a halt. When you know how to positively engage others in a conflict, it can provide the opportunity to clarify issues, create innovative solutions and strengthen relationships.

     3. All conflicts can be resolved. There are going to be times when you simply cannot agree on certain issues. Because of different values, you might have to make choices about which differences to address for a solution, which differences to address for learning, and which differences to leave alone.

     4. It always results in a winner or loser. There are many possible outcomes to a conflict that don't necessarily mean that someone wins and someone loses. When mutual desire exists to resolve differences, you can increase the chance for win-win results. 


Four Truths about Conflict :

The four truths about conflict are as follows :

   1. It will occur. It is a natural dynamic when interacting with others. The important question is what you do with the conflict.

   2. It can help build a relationship. When you know how to work through conflicts with people, it is possible to strengthen bonds with managers and colleagues.

   3. It can be a tool for personal development. In addressing differences, you can be exposed to new ideas and thus have an opportunity to reassess your own perspectives and beliefs.

   4. Most Conflicts can be managed. There are five approaches to use when dealing with conflict, all of which may be appropriate in different situations.

   To help you in your next workplace conflict, use the following definitions of these five options as a quick checklist to determine the best way to approach the situation :

   1. Competition (Win-Lose Method) : 

          This is the power-based, winner-takes-all approach. The focus is winning at any cost instead of searching for the most appropriate solution for everyone involved.

   2. Accommodation (Lose-Win Method) :

          This can be a variation of the competition approach in which you are willing to lose to the other person.
          It can also be an assertive method when you realize it is more important to preserve the relationship than to argue the issue, or when the issue is more important to the other person that it is to you.

   3. Avoidance (Lose-Lose Method) :

          This may sometimes be considered a fear response or a denial that a problem exists. However, you may choose avoidance when others can resolve the conflict more efficiently, or when both parties need a chance to cool off, or addressing the situation directly may be too damaging or costly to both parties involved.

   4. Compromise(Win-Lose and Win-Lose Method) :

          This includes negotiation, trade-offs, and a high degree of flexibility. You can get some of what you want, but you will also have to give up something.

   5. Collaboration(Win-Win Method) :

          This requires a climate in which each person is willing and able to examine and understand the other person's point of view.

   It requires trust, the willingness to be creative, and the ability to empathize to reach a solution. Whatever method you use, the key to these different approaches is to choose one that fits with the situation, and what you would like to see happen. Ask yourself: What do you want as a result? What is at stake because of this conflict?
