Topic 2 Team conflict resolution

Working in a team can bring some challenges such as

  • Non-cooperation
  • Unproductivity by team members
  • Conflict development.

To solve those “problems” the leader of a team can organize team building activities and team members should participate as these activities improve bonding within the team. Also, co-workers should avoid assumptions, be patient and speak individually to the member that they have a conflict with.

When we face conflicts, instead of avoiding them, this can lead to strengthening of the whole team. Moreover, research shows that sharing our thoughts and the workload with each other can reduce levels of stress.
