Most Work Conflicts Aren't Due to Personality

Most Work Conflicts Aren't Due to Personality | Career Development | Scoop.it
Where you stand depends on where you sit.

Nikki Streatfield's insight:

Often conflict at work is far more complex than mere personality dynamics

more...
Sandeep Gautam's curator insight, May 20, 12:16 PM

"The real reasons for conflict are a lot harder to raise — and resolve — because they are likely to be complex, nuanced, and politically sensitive. For example, people’s interests may truly be opposed; roles and levels of authority may not be correctly defined or delineated; there may be real incentives to compete rather than to collaborate; and there may be little to no accountability or transparency about what people do or say."

A situational aspect to conflicts is very much needed; but the effects of individuals involved is not necessarily spurious: knowing where they are coming from can help mitigate/ manage conflict.

John Michel's curator insight, May 21, 11:27 AM

As human beings evolved, our survival depended on being able to quickly identify and differentiate friend from foe, which meant making rapid judgments about the character and intentions of other people or tribes. Focusing on people rather than situations is faster and simpler, and focusing on a few attributes of people, rather than on their complicated entirety, is an additional temptation.
