Conflict in the workplace: assessments and related readings

Quote: "What we need is collaboration where tension, disagreement, and conflict improve the value of the ideas, expose the risks inherent in the plan, and lead to enhanced trust among the participants."

Conflict often makes the top ten list of worries for managers, businesses, and even families. Letting conflict go too far can even lead to retaliation. Having a plan for dealing with conflict, or preventing it in the first place, can make your company a place where people enjoy working hard and creatively.
