Workplace conflict damages your business

Conflict is a part of life when working closely with others, sometimes we don’t see eye to eye.

Disagreements are normal. However, sometimes conflict escalates to the point where it affects an employee’s ability to be a productive member/s of the team. Others are then affected, efficiency is reduced and there is the potential for stress or similar workplace claims. Conflict needs to be addressed promptly, professionally and in a cost effective and caring manner.

Our business, Mediation, Coaching and Counselling will provide cost effective, professional  and prompt assistance to resolve issues between employees. Conflict Coaching and counselling can also be offered if you feel this would be more appropriate than formal mediation. Please call or email to confidentially discuss your situation and we will match the appropriate intervention for you.

Benefits of Conflict Resolution

Greater productivity

When your team is co-operating, productivity increases. In contrast, when there is conflict between staff, they may withhold information, be critical of the other and consciously or unconsciously de-rail the day to day functioning of their work environment.

Promptly introducing a conflict resolution process, including effective preparation of each employee for mediation, may help to open the lines of communication, reduce lost revenue and potential stress claims. 

Better Staff Retention

Most employees resign or seek employment elsewhere primarily due to conflict in the workplace.   The time taken to train staff on your policies, procedures and how to do their work efficiently, is one of the costlier aspects of running a business.

Providing employees with the opportunity to participate in either Conflict Coaching or Mediation when conflict first  appears will reduce the likelihood of premature resignation, stress leave, or filing workplace complaints.

More Enjoyable Workplace

Most of us spend the majority of our waking hours at the workplace. We frequently spend more time there than with our friends and family.

If there is unresolved conflict at work, the negative impact may adversely affect other aspects of an employee’s life.

Having a positive workplace allows us more energy to do our work well and to lead a more happy and fulfilling life.  Guidance and support will provided in order to reduce the negative impact of disagreement, disputes and difficult relationships.
