As an employer, you do not really feel the financial effects of workplace conflict until it reaches Level 3 or higher on the workplace conflict scale. Unfortunately, by the time it gets to that level, the cost of conflict begins to rise exponentially! Using the credo 'an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure', the smart employer proactively tackles conflict by following the steps outlined below.
Step 1: We have already explored the causes of conflict in prior posts.
Step 2: Our review of the workplace conflict scale extensively outlined the positive correlation between the escalation pf conflict and the loss in time and money for the employer.
Step 3: Here you will find information on the types of conflict generally found in the workplace'. In addition, there is also a step by step guide for you to identify the types of conflict specifically found in your workplace.
Step 4: There are two parts to this step: first you get information on how to diffuse existing conflicts; and second, how to begin to create a culture of zen in the workplace.
Step 5: The internet is vast and there is an inordinate amount of information available to those who have the time to look.
