Communication, Conflict and Motivation
Pick a fight
Conflict can be painful, but it can be channelled as a force for good. Don't shy away.
Many people try to avoid conflict, especially in the office. But conflict can be a constructive force as well as a destructive one. It can provoke new ideas, and push people into new and better ways of doing things. Avoiding conflict means failing to address genuine issues, and failing to find better ways to work together.
If you’re never arguing, you’re never opening the door to this mode of problem solving. Be careful though: don't be unpleasant to people. Criticism of ideas or behaviour is OK, but not of beliefs or characteristics.
