Conflicts in the workplace can be both disruptive and demotivating; therefore, it is essential to eliminate conflict as quickly as possible. The emotional and financial cost can escalate if not addressed swiftly. Coaching intervention is an effective and immediate way to resolving conflict and bring about workable solutions.
In the event of discourse in the workplace, often using coaching to resolve employment grievances is a relatively swift and cost-effective way to resolve issues. When the employee is given the space and time to speak freely, to be heard, in a compassionate and confidential manner, it can be surprising how much this can create a more co-operative and collaborative environment where the real underlying issues that caused the grievance can be discussed and dealt with in a more mature and practical manner.
We are all individuals with unique personalities and ways of dealing with situations and our emotions; conflict will occur at times, also at home with those we love and care about. This is normal and can be resolved by accepting that this can happen, that it can be addressed and the relationship can be brought back into balance.
Knowing that relationship conflict is normal, it can be helpful to have a strategy or two to help you move through times of conflict; by applying some of the basic principles of positive human interaction, such as listening to each other, respecting your differences, understanding the others point of view and good communication, you can work towards successfully addressing the existing conflict.
For there to be no conflict whatsoever in a relationship might be the result of a level of acceptable compromise on the part of one partner or the other, or there are a lot of areas that you both agree upon. Fundamentally, it is fine to agree to disagree with each other, to have differing opinions, and this does not need to lead to a conflicting situation in a relationship.
There is often conflict between a young adult and parents, when living together under one roof, and this conflict tends to increase as we reach our late teens and early 20s. As a young person, as your personality and interests develop, you have your own thoughts and ideas about yourself and your life, your decision making process is forming based on your own experiences, all these may be very different to the way your parents think, what they believe, and their values. Naturally, these differences at this stage can create a lot of tension and conflict, which would be best dealt with via open communication, mutual respect and understanding.
With marriage comes expectations and with the tensions of daily life, the different personalities of each person, and our unique habits, which may not be appealing to the other, conflict in marriage is bound to happen. Resolving conflict in marriage requires a level of compromise, a lot of acceptance, a little less selfishness, forgiveness, and the ability to confront and discuss issues with a view to finding a midway solution. Remember, no-one is perfect, you and your partner will get things wrong in the eyes of each other from time to time; and you are married because you do love and appreciate each other, show this as often as you can.
Is a man failing miserably if his wife earns more than he does? Does a woman respect her husband less if he is not earning as much as she does? The answers to these questions would depend on your values about the role of the wife and the husband in a relationship, and the expectations you each have of yourselves and of the other. Where we have a sense of self-esteem and self-confidence because of who we are rather than what we earn, then the income of one or the other would matter less; if our income determines our self-esteem, and defines our identity, then the problems underlying one’s sense of self would possibly go far beyond differing earning abilities, and would be wise to be addressed. In a successful relationship, so long as both partners are contributing to the total, in a way that suits them both, does it matter who brings what to the partnership.
