Turning Conflict Into Productive Teamwork and Collaboration
Turning Workplace Drama and Interpersonal Conflict Into Productive Collaboration
Drama and conflict in the workplace causes stress, which in turn costs businesses billions of dollars in lost productivity, revenue and profits. Drama and conflict also contribute to high rates of employee turnover and incidents of inappropriate (and sometimes violent) behavior in the workplace.
According to the American Institute of Stress (AIS) website, “Numerous studies show that job stress is far and away the major source of stress for American adults and that it has escalated precariously over the past few decades.”
As a result, supervisors, managers, and leaders must not only handle their own personal stress levels, but they also need to monitor and deal with the stress levels of their team members and co-workers.
Unfortunately, most supervisors, managers, and leaders do not receive conflict management training. As a result, too much workplace conflict and drama goes unresolved. Organizations must prepare leaders to handle conflict, drama, and stress as part of their preparations for returning to the workplace environment post COVID-19 pandemic.
