Conflict Resolution in the Workplace, Respectfully Disagreeing with Your Manager, and Building the Business Case for HR Initiatives Within Companies
I'm sure we've all heard the saying, "conflict is inevitable," and yes, it's as inevitable in the workplace as it is anywhere else.
But it’s up to each of us to decide whether a workplace conflict becomes destructive and causes distrust and disarray across our team, or whether a particular disagreement results in a constructive conversation that ultimately pushes our team to produce a better outcome.
That’s our theme in this week’s two articles: turning workplace conflicts into opportunities. "Respectfully Disagreeing with Your Manager" covers the delicate art of standing your ground professionally, a skill that promotes diversity of thought and leads to innovative solutions. Meanwhile, "Conflict Resolution in the Workplace" highlights frameworks to navigate conflicts and maintain a harmonious, productive team environment.
And of course, make sure to listen to this week’s episode of The Everyday Leader, where we hear from Ruben Munien from CIEL Textile in Mauritius, on how he has leaned on peer coaches through CoffeeChat to help him navigate challenges in rolling out important initiatives in his role.
