Your Job Forces You to Deal With Conflict at Work – Part 1

Posted By on June 5th

What if you are in a job that forces you to deal with conflict at work?

Conflict at Work

When you are working with people who are already in conflict, who are dealing with lots of stress, and who don’t know how to manage their own conflict, you are undoubtedly going to be dragged into the conflict.

Most people run the other way from conflict. You, however, don’t have that choice. You have to learn to recognize their difficult behavior, understand the reason for their difficult behavior, and learn how to respond to their difficult behavior.

You want to be prepared from moving away from a victim mentality to realizing you have choices. You should not own their pain or their anger. You have to consider your long term goals for the situation.

  • Can you avoid the conflict?
  • Is there an option to save yourself time?
  • Is there an option to save your energy?
  • What things can you do to protect yourself?
