Managing team conflict

Managing Team Conflict

A healthy approach to communication and problem-solving.

Foundation Standard 8.23


Use assertive communication

Use Assertive Communication

  • Respect the rights of others.

  • Stand up for your rights and beliefs.

  • Look for a win-win solution.


What are rights

What are rights?

  • Rights are things you are morally entitled to.

  • You have the right to stand up for your rights.

  • Do you have the right not to?

  • You must respect the rights of others.

  • You DO NOT have the right to violate their rights.

  • It’s a balancing act to know where your rights end and another person’s rights begin.


Whose rights

Whose rights?

  • The boys next door want to practice their music.

  • Dina is a college student with an 8 AM chemistry class, and the noise keeps her awake at night.


Whose rights1

Whose rights?

  • Mrs. Avenue is a member of your community who wears furs.

  • You have a moral objection to her wearing animal fur.

  • What are her rights?

  • What do you have the right to do to protest her furs?

  • What don’t you have the right to do?


Whose rights2

Whose rights?

  • Mrs. Camel smokes in her car on the way to work.

  • The odor on Mrs. Camel’s uniform and hair is offensive to one of her patients.

  • Does Mrs. Camel have the “right” to smoke on her way to work and during her breaks?


What is a win win

What is a win-win?

  • In a win-win decision, the rights of both parties are respected.

  • To achieve a win-win, sometimes you need to redefine the goal.

  • The goal of conflict resolution is often to find a win-win solution.


Find the win win

Find the Win-Win

  • Bob wants to go out for dinner, but they don’t have a baby-sitter.

  • Brett has had a long, hard day and is too tired to attempt an outing with the baby.

  • Is there a win-win?


Find the win win1

Find the Win-Win

  • Mary and Janika are going to split a dessert.

  • Mary wants the chocolate cake.

  • Janika wants apple pie with ice cream.

  • If they flip a coin to decide, is that a win-win?


Choose your conflicts wisely

Choose Your Conflicts Wisely

  • Is there ever a time when you should walk away from a conflict?

  • Alanna walks past a construction site. A worker yells out “Hey baby. Wanna sit on my lap!”

  • Should Alanna correct the man’s rude behavior?


What are the rules

What are the Rules?

  • If you could write three rules for when NOT to choose a conflict, what would they be?


Gather the facts

Gather the Facts

  • If you are in a conflict, the first thing you need to do is to gather the facts.

  • Give the other person the benefit of the doubt until you have all the facts.

  • Do NOT depend on third-hand information.

  • Always ask – don’t accuse.


Gather the facts1

Gather the Facts

  • Jamar is a pharmacist in the Walmart pharmacy.

  • Brenda agrees to work for him on Tuesday.

  • On Wednesday, Jamar comes to work and sees that Brenda did not work on Tuesday.

  • What should he do?


Gather the facts2

Gather the Facts

Hey Brenda. How did it go yesterday?

It was crazy. They sent me to the Walmart on the South Side because of that flu outbreak, and I worked 14 hours!
