Dealing With Conflict

Conflict is the inevitable output of workplaces that seek to integrate a broad range of skills and backgrounds and when managed poorly can have a negative effect on both the culture and profitability of an organisation. Kenneth Thomas PhD co developer of the Thomas/Kilmann conflict model defines conflict as,

‘the condition in which peoples concerns appear to be incompatible’

and suggests that research has shown that depending on their level within the organisation managers self report that they spend 18-26% of their time dealing with workplace conflicts.

Trust – The keystone of Leadership

Is Trust on your Leadership Agenda? Research shows that the experiences of many employees before and during the recession have led to a fall in trust for both organisations and their leaders. This is not to say that employees are merely resentful of leadership actions – many understand the business context and the tough decisions that have to be made but feel they are not respected in the way these decisions are delivered. Whilst employers may feel they own the labour market at the moment the erosion of trust and feelings of uncertainty have an impact on a company’s ability to weather the business storm. A lack of trust reduces the company’s capability to solve problems/work collectively and share information openly, the very traits it needs to demonstrate to gain a competitive advantage in tough times and retain talent for times of growth.
