Conflict is an inherent part of any organization. Even though some conflict may be beneficial to an organization, unresolved conflict or conflict that is resolved poorly usually results in negative consequences such as job withdrawal behaviour, unionization activity, low morale, and lower levels of goal attainment. This programme will examine some of the sources of conflict at work places and identify why some conflicts never get resolved. It will work with the participants in identifying issues along the conflict path that contribute poorly resolved conflicts and those that while they have a huge potential for effective conflict resolution but parties to a conflict never take advantage of them. Much of discussion in the programme will focus on collaborative conflict management approaches.
