Leaders Face Conflict Head On
Leaders champion conversations coming from conflict to lead change, innovation and growth, personally and professionally. Leader embraces the thought that without embracing conflict, and shifting it into a non-combative conversation, there will be many missed opportunities.
When this happens
Leaders move from finding out who is the problem but what is the problem and why is there a problem – so they can fix the problem.
In listening we commonly hearI honestly don’t like it, that’s why I procrastinate.
I dread having to have that conversation with him/her and avoid it like the plague.
Sometimes I avoid it in hopes that it will go away. Most of time it doesn’t!
