Healthy Team Conflict

The topic of conflict has been coming up frequently over the last 6 to 9 months. So much so that we've devoted four months of learning events to the topic (the first one just completed in April, on health team conflict).

Asking ourselves "Why now?," we've concluded the the economy has a lot to do with it.  As job worries increase, as employees who aren't themselves victims of layoffs take on additional work - and work that's not likely in their areas of strength, stress increases. As stress increases, so too conflict.  In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that 385 million working days are spent in conflict each year.  That's costly!

However, it's not all bad news. Healthy conflict breeds innovation, creativity, better problem solutions, and increased morale!
