Leadership & Conflict go hand-in-hand

After you read the teasers below, I hope you will click on Mike Myatt's blog post at Leadership and Conflict.
  • "Every workplace is plagued with manipulative people who use emotion to create conflict in order to cover-up for their lack of substance."
  • "The fact of the matter is that conflict in the workplace is unavoidable. It will find you whether you look for it (good idea – more later) or not."
  • "How many times over the years have you witnessed otherwise savvy professionals self-destruct because they wouldn’t engage out of a fear of conflict? Putting one’s head in the sand and hoping that conflict will pass you by is not the most effective methodology for problem solving."
There is much more in this article, including a list of solid suggestions for the effective handling of conflict in the workplace, at the following link: Leadership and Conflict
