Building Conflict Competent Teams
The authors of Building Conflict Competent Teams invite you to explore new ways to get the best out of inevitable conflict. Find out why Ken Blanchard, co-author of the One Minute Manager® and One Minute EntrepreneurTM said about the book, "Conflict happens on the best of teams. Building Conflict Competent Teams shows team leaders how to constructively tackle the challenges that come when people disagree."
When conflict occurs on your team, how do you respond? How do your teammates respond? In many cases team members resort to ineffective tactics such as "fight and flight" responses. Many team members try to avoid conflict altogether. Some simply deny that conflict exists. Others react to conflict out of anger or defensiveness. In each of these cases, frustration mounts, trust is eroded, and collaboration suffers. On the other hand, successful teams know that conflict must be embraced and explored. In fact, conflict often results in new, previously unimagined opportunities, ideas, and solutions.
