How do you feel about conflict at work? Are you one of these people that kind of love the flash in the pan of a little conflict, or do you more avoid and hide from addressing it? Our approach can be so different, from slipping into passive mode (giving up our rights for others), aggressive (pushing our own rights at the expense of others). Not forgetting passive-aggressive mode when we veil and mask our true feelings by going around the conflict.
There is so much power in truly resolving conflict at work when we begin by reframing it. This immediately helps us to assume a much more assertive role – when we stand up for our own rights while also respecting the views of everyone else too.
