Brian DeCook was one of our speakers in Season 1 of First Fridays Fort Wayne. He is an expert on conflict management/resolution. Below is a recent article he posted on LinkedIn.
The power of conflict is amazing. It can humble and humiliate us. It can expose our selfishness and arrogance. It can take a gifted and talented team and turn it into a band of dysfunctional misfits. Conflict can hinder relationships, diminish productivity, and destroy morale.
But the power of conflict can also energize and elevate us. It can take the coal of our character and create a diamond. It can turn a mediocre team into champions.
So why do some teams elevate their performance during a conflict when others fall apart?
