As long as work is to be done by people, there will be workplace conflicts. We can work to avoid conflicts, or we can embrace conflicts as they arise.
Here are several ideas on managing conflicts.
1.Conflicts will occur, be ready for them.
2.Being part of a team does not eliminate conflicts.
3.Establish lines of communication to deal with conflicts.
4.Continually remind everyone that workplace conflicts are not personal.
James (James 4:1-12) discusses in detail how to resolve conflicts. His suggestion of an attitude of humility during a workplace conflict will keep the conflict from becoming personal.
Philippians 2:3 says, “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”
Look for solutions to workplace conflicts through humility.
