Ability to solve problems and conflicts is crucial for team development, interdepartmental cooperation and for the general quality of life and long term success. Unresolved conflicts do not disappear by themselves. Instead, they only intensify with time. Sweeping the problem under the rug will not solve it, but only delay it. Research shows that when in conflict, employees cooperate less or stop cooperating completely!
Conflict often creates a situation where employees obstruct each others’ work. Also, in a conflict environment, fewer employees use the available information and resources and are more focused on the self-protection and self-preservation. This type of behavior greatly harms the organization by reducing its profitability, reducing productivity, employee and customer attrition and reducing the motivation of other employees to be helpful and supportive of other employee’. However, the process of conflict resolution can be cheap, fast and risk free compared to those consequences.
In conclusion, the damage conflicts causes an organization is enormous and skilful managers can even quantify those losses. We, the external trainers and consultants, can help to resolve these conflicts that slowly but surely damage the work of an organization. Sometimes it is necessary to bring in the “third objective” consultant who will help you resolve these conflicts that inhibits and slow down efficient operation of your organization!
