As HR professionals, we come to realize that most conflicts are not necessarily due to either party being right or wrong. These conflicts more commonly exist due to differing perceptions or understandings of the parties involved. As you studied, conflict can be positive and strengthen individualsâ€™ performance and workplace productivity. Employees and even situations can benefit with the implementation of conflict management methods such as effective communications, cooperation, and team-building techniques.
Post a cohesive and scholarly response based on your readings and research that addresses the following:
- Share at least 2 examples of situations when HR would need to implement conflict management in the workplace.
- Describe 3 ways HR professionals can contribute to effective conflict management practices in the workplace
- Drawing on what you learned about functional and dysfunctional conflict and the stages of the lifecycle of conflict, what are some indications that a conflict has exceeded the parameters of effectively being managed and it is time to focus on conflict resolution?
The assignment must have at least three references.
