Have you ever had to put up with some drama or office politics in the workplace? Is it with your boss or a coworker?
Let’s see; you spend about eight hours in the workplace for five days a week. That means you spend more hours with your coworkers and bosses than with your own family. Right?
Don’t you think you deserve peace of mind during your work hours? I think so.
It’s all about teamwork. It’s about getting along with your coworkers or bosses to get the job done. When there are fighting and tension at work, nobody wins. Morale is low. Productivity goes down.
Now, there are many books and training out there on conflict resolution. But, I don’t believe conflicts are that difficult to resolve.
With this simple strategy I share in the video, you probably don’t need any conflict resolution training, mediation, or outside intervention.
In most cases, we can solve a conflict by acknowledging there’s a problem, and we need to resolve it. Simply put, communication is key. The silent attitude is not a solution.
Conflict or bullying is about pushing and resisting. People are wired to push and resist. They need conflicts to thrive. When there is nothing to push, they feel weak and powerless.
Admittedly, we need to conflicts to grow, learn and expand. However, when the conflicts create too much stress and drama, we need to do something about it.
So, don’t wait for the situation to get better on its own. Take the responsibility to resolve the issue.
My nephew came to me for advice to deal with his aggressive and pushy boss. I shared a strategy with him. Three days later he sent me a text message to let me know the boss made a 180-degree turn.
That’s exactly what I want to share with you here so you can resolve all your conflicts.
