Conflict is simply the time and space where differences meet. Differences, however, are often immediately perceived as potential threats to our interests - even when no threat actually exists.
Differing personalities, perspectives, ideas, beliefs, and values in the workplace can be the catalyst for creativity.
Yet, when mismanaged, these differences can become a significant source of negative tension, frustration, and anxiety among co-workers.
