In the real world, not everything goes well, not everyone is happy, there is always bad news as well as good, troubled waters as well as smooth.
Conflict resolution within an agency can be very difficult. Some action, even if that is deliberate non-action, must take place. But how do we understand conflict, and when is it out of line. Very few leaders fail because of their inability to deal with success. Typically, failure results from an inability to deal with problems.
Not all conflict is bad and not all conflict needs a supervisor’s attention. But certain guidelines can be used to determine whether a conflict is a problem that needs attention or can just be tolerated and observed. Conflict is out of line if it inhibits those involved from participating in the mission and functions of the organization. Also, when conflict damages the reputation of the agency, it needs resolution. When conflict distracts from the larger task of the organization or is along vertical lines of authority, it is wrong and needs attention.
This course will describe for you what conflict is, and what it is not, and give you some simple steps to recognize it. The course also offers insight into how to recognize if conflict within an organization is getting out of line and hurting the organization. Lastly, this course offers you the step and actions to take to properly and effectively resolve conflict within your organization and between peers.
