Top Tips from Brigid Leishman, our guest speaker at the Conflict Resolution Development Network session for clients!
Brigid's talked about these key areas in relation to Conflict in the Workplace:
1. Five key reasons conflict arises
2. Manage, don't avoid
3. Conflict can be healthy
4. First principle. You are always in control of your own behaviour
Brigid's Tip # 1
You are not always in control of every situation, however you are always
in control of your own behaviour. 100%
Brigid's Tip # 2
As the famous philosopher Kenny Rogers says, "You gotta know when to
hold 'em, know when to fold 'em". Pick your battles
Brigid's Tip # 3
Focus on the issue not the person. Everyone is operating from their own
view of what is right
Thank you Brigid for your wonderful insight.
