Quote: “I think there’s even more of a resistance to avoid difficult conversations, which I believe is actually an escalation to conflict.” Christi Scarrow
The definition of conflict is a struggle or clash of interest, opinion, or even principles, a difference that prevents agreement. Conflict will always be found in society and isn’t going anywhere, so our best defence is to face it head-on, but many are intimidated by conflict and avoid it at all costs. On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome back Accountability Expert Christi Scarrow to share even more great ideas for leaders about resolving conflict in the workplace.
I had such a wonderful and information-filled chat with Christi last week that we decided to turn it into a 2-part series. In case you missed last week, here’s the link to Part I It’s not mandatory that you listen to it first, but I recommend that you do. There’s so much amazing content, it would be a shame for you to miss out on any of it.
