Iconflict is a fact of life. Human beings are multifaceted characters and “not” everyone is going to get along all the time. In many I I instances, conflict in the workplace causes havoc. At the very least, it can lead to uncomfortable tension among staff. At worst, the I I results can be deadly. You need to deal with conflict in a way that makes sense for your situation; in general, however, the collaborative I I effort is the way to go because it involves people working together for the common good.
Workplace conflict is a conflict that can be causedl I by many factors including he long hours many people spend at their workplace, the hierarchical structure of the organization, and the I I difficulties like financial problems that may be involved in switching to a different workplace.
