How Common is Workplace Conflict?
If you’re a human being, then you probably have disagreements with the people that you live with, be it a spouse, a sibling, a parent, or a roommate. And like most humans, you probably don’t always see eye to eye with everyone that you work with, either. That happens, and typically it’s no big deal.
But sometimes those workplace disagreements become a very big deal, indeed. Sometimes our inability to work through arguments in the office lead to a rise in unhappiness and a drop in productivity. You may trust your colleagues less, and as a result have more stumbling blocks to a happy office.
There are a variety of reasons that you might experience conflict at work. You might not be talking well with people that you spend your work days with. If so, there are strategies you can implement to improve communication. What are they—and what else can you do? This graphic offers some ideas.
