Conflict Management and its Peculiarities
In the beginning, I wasn’t really interested in the topic but as soon as I started to follow the teacher and what impact it can make to a workplace, I came to realize how important it can be. Especially as the world is now, it can be extremely helpful to have any knowledge about how to avoid the conflicts and if the need comes, how to minimize the effect. Apart from that, grooming such a skill can prove to be a bliss in professional life as that is where a person is subjected to enormous stressful and hectic routines, so there is good probability of loosing the temper and loosing temper at a job place can cause major consequences.
The lecture started with the introduction to the topic and thereafter, the factors which can lead to a conflict. Interestingly, there are a couple of thing which I couldn’t even think can cause such a mess like the limited availability of resources and perceived difference, along with them were some commonly known factors like miscommunication, ambience and health. Among these, miscommunication takes the major share of the clash. It may happen when someone fails to transfer some important information which may lead to major consequences or a variety of consequences. Besides that, more causes include the situation when somebody is all sweet on the face but always has some latest gossip or in other words talks about the colleagues behind their back. Also, there can be cases when two people, due to the profession, are put in a place together and they don’t socialize otherwise. They possess totally different viewpoints and can’t stand other’s perspectives.
Thereafter, we were taught about the ways how people respond to conflict which included:
One of the most critical topic in the conflict management is the conflict spiral, which I was not really able to follow to first but when I asked the teacher for help, she was kind enough to repeat the same in more layman and I started catching up. It comprised of a series of stages starting from the mildest to the extreme on the scale of clash intensity. The stages are Tolerance, covert resistance, overt resistance, critical incidents, selective perceptions, and listing the support of others, issue linkage, ritual words, hot-button words, threats, actions. There exists some sub-reactions under the category of ‘action’ as provocation, retaliation and violence.
Conflicts take place almost everywhere and may result in serious outcomes, specially in workplaces. Such unrest can arise at vertical level (between seniors and juniors) as well as at horizontal level (between colleagues). These maybe staff-line conflicts or related to the role of employees or recourse allocation or when staff is dependent on each other to achieve a goal, the other causes may include different goals of individuals within the organization. What caught my eye the most here are the possibilities of the steps that can be taken to resolve the maters in such cases after the type of conflict has been recognized, and this can surely prove to be a great asset for me while working for any organization in the future and the outcomes will definitely be both impressive and peaceful.
As Managers, we can state that situations of conflict are inevitable and necessary when working as teams within an organization. Conflict occurs when people impertinently take a stand based on deviating perceptions or ideas from one another within a group. When working in a clinical setting this can be extremely challenging for managers as we must better assist and understand the conflict between physicians, employees and even patients. This can occur when there are disagreements in goals, actualities or expectations...
The Civil War was a devastating conflict between the North and the South. The Union was a tight alliance of states, while the Confederacy was the group of Southern states that broke away from the Union and declared independence, thus rebelling and causing war with the Union. “The Confederate War” encapsulates this conflict by representing both sides, and the Confederacy in particular, with a fresh perspective. “The Confederate War” questions the stereotypes of the Confederacy and historical tropes that have...
The combination of pain, stress, uncertainty, and a lack of control can be a cause for conflict among children with learning disabilities and challenging behaviours. At lavender house, sometimes a combinational booking does lead to other children being upset with their colleague’s behaviour during the night. This is because other children are unable to settle to sleep while others are still awake. This can cause additional stress and conflict can become escalating and potentially lead to conflict situation that can...
In civil war literature, it is commonly understood that a low-income country has a higher chance of civil conflict occurring than a high-income country. However, this relationship can be seen to go both ways, as in the same way that low-income countries have an increased likelihood of conflict, instances of conflict can lead to a countries economy to worsen, and as such, a cycle can emerge where a country can never leave conflict. This cycle is known as the conflict...
Introduction: Conflict is a rift or imbalance created between two individuals or between a group of individuals in the way of approach, thought or work. This imbalance may be due to social or personal behavioral change. If physical or psychological damage is caused to any person or group then the issue turns into conflict. Mediation is a problem-solving technique with the help of a neutral third party called mediator. He navigates into the conflict without any capacity to make a...
Introduction “Conflicts have been with man since creation. In fact it was as a result of conflict that God sent away Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, in the Bible.” (AMOH, 2007). According to this statement, conflict and life have been intertwined since time immemorial. The author meant that, as long as there is life, there is conflict. It doesn’t matter what kind of conflict it is, whether it is internal or external; social, economic or political (Bergmann...
A lack of mutual respect between law enforcement and private security has been established. Much of this is attributable to the perceived law enforcement differential status — the police attach a higher level or degree of status to the role of law enforcement than to private security (Raines, 2006). Therefore, mutual disrespect is nurtured by the existence of mutual negative stereotyping which reinforces itself and is rooted in misinformation, mistrust, distrust and prejudice. Police officers find themselves to be ‘professionals’...
The African novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Abbane is a story of how the beginnings of the colonization of Africa affect the Igbo people, specifically one man named Okonkwo. The novel is a tragedy because it shows how the community unravels and Okonkwo’s inability to deal with the new way of life in his community. Things Fall Apart is more specifically a Shakespearean Tragedy because it has the aspects of a tragic hero with flaws, struggle between good and...
There are a few ways of managing expectations and conflicts with stake holders, this depends the stake holders themselves and whether the conflict is between those outside of the organisation or inside the organisation or a mix of both inside and outside. In my opinion first and foremost is good communications. I find this is key to insuring all stake holders understand where a project is and what the next steps to achieve the final goal are. Where there is...
