The UN proclaimed July 30th International Day of Friendship to help promote peace between individuals and among groups. In your workplace you may want to encourage people to write anonymous notes about how others have been a good friend at work – helping with tasks, noticing when they are not well, sitting with them at lunch or going for a walk at break. The idea is to inspire others to do the same.
Call a Friend when you need an objective perspective to help deal with a challenge that has you feeling stressed.
July 30th is International Day of Friendship. Conflict is part of most honest relationships, especially at work. Learning to resolve conflict effectively can improve the quality of any relationship. Here are some things to think about when looking to resolve conflict with others:
Understanding your own needs
Conflict is often the result of unmet needs. Some examples of needs at work are recognition, fairness, understanding, security, predictability, balance, etc. Try to understand your own needs in a way that is not just wishing for someone else to change what they are doing.
Getting a different perspective
You may be going through some challenges unrelated to work that reduce your ability to handle conflict. When you step back, you may be able to see that the issue itself is not insurmountable, but because of everything else going on, you may have a lower tolerance.
Getting a second opinion
Discuss the facts of the conflict with a trusted person who can help you check your perceptions. Read more on Ideas for Resolving Conflict at Work.
