Are Your Managers Trained in Conflict?

Leaders, how much thought have you given to ensuring your managers are equipped to manage workplace conflict? It’s vital to not only know how to deal with conflict but also to understand that conflict can be leveraged in a very positive way.

While the general perception is that conflict is a sign of dysfunction, modern research on organizational culture, teamwork, and leadership indicate that knowing how to navigate, and even encourage, healthy conflict at work can inspire greater productivity, engagement, and cohesion in an organization.

According to recent Wiley research, only 57% of managers report they’ve received training for conflict management. Aside from the importance of this skill for maintaining a healthy workplace culture, conflict management can also impact a manager’s own wellbeing. People managers who have received training on employee discipline or conflict management, according to Wiley, report higher confidence levels in their ability to handle conflict or have difficult conversations than those who did not receive any training. And more confidence means a more successful and satisfied leadership team!

The best way that organizations can work towards creating a culture embracing healthy conflict is by being proactive. Facilitated learning experiences such as DiSC can provide the training managers and leaders need to transform their approach to conflict.

It’s inevitable that conflict will happen in the workplace, as well as at home. However, it’s how you handle the conflict that can move the conflict and relationships into being either productive or destructive. Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict helps you turn potentially destructive conflicts into something that’s effective and productive – leading to stronger relationships among teams or family members.

Understanding Yourself and Others in Conflict

At the core of Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict is understanding personalities, specifically, yours. It starts by taking an introspective look at yourself and recognizing your behavioral tendencies when it comes to how you engage in conflict. When you understand yourself better, you’ll discover how to communicate with others more effectively and navigate yourself through conflict more productively.

Next, we explore how others respond in conflict, there is no one-size-fits-all solution; however, learning more about how DiSC® styles influence behavior in conflict – is a great next step! From this discovery, you will uncover how others communicate and react during a conflict and learn how their conflict behaviors differ from yours.  This will help you understand and then respond more appropriately, leading to fewer escalations and misunderstandings; instead enabling more meaningful discussions – all the while building trust and growing your workplace relationships.

The Four DiSC® Styles in Conflict

Each of these behavioral traits and styles process conflict differently. By understanding yourself and each style of your team members, you can approach a conflict with a better idea of how someone might react to your messaging.  Take a look at the DiSC® Productive Conflict Map – what feels familiar to you?
