There is an immutable conflict at work in life and in business, a constant battle between peace and chaos. Neither can be mastered, but both can be influenced. How you go about that is the key to success.
Whether it’s because someone stole your lunch or your boss cancelled your big project right before you almost finished it, everyone experiences conflict at work on occassion. So what should you do when you have a problem with someone else, or even if you just get thrown into the middle of someone else’s problem? This infographic can help.
Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that even for those of us who hate drama and try to stay mellow and bow out of other people’s problems, conflict is just a fact of life and sometimes you have to deal with it. Also, never make a professional problem into a personal one either by taking an issue someone has with your work as an attack on your character or by taking a conflict you have with someone else and bringing in their personal life. Remember that making a professional conflict into something personal will only reflect badly on you.
