A Reflection on an Employee’s Experience of Conflict

Why I am in conflict with you…

I am in conflict with you because I don’t trust you.

I don’t trust you because you have done and said things that contradict what I think is acceptable.

Behaviours (actions and comments) that I find acceptable are ones which:

  • Show me respect
  • Support my efforts
  • Align with my values
  • Do not make me feel uncomfortable or confronted
  • Are displayed consistently and in a transparent manner
  • Leave no room for me to second guess your intentions

I am less likely to be in conflict with you if we share some aspects of commonality or relatedness.

The more we share in common and the more times I have a positive interaction with you, the less chance there is for conflict.
