Conflict Management Competence & Importance

Conflict is a natural occurrence, and an inevitable part of living and being in relationships with other human begins. Although conflict can invoke anger, distrust, fear, and other negative emotions, it is important to learn how to deal with conflict when it shows up in your personal life or organization because these unaddressed discords will quickly escalate, creating more challenges than you initially started with. Being proficient in conflict resolution is no different than learning other crucial life skills such as cooking, cleaning, driving, laundry, budgeting, sewing, writing, speaking, etc. Like it or not: conflict is not going anywhere – till death do you part. Like many other obstacles and challenges we face: it’s a lot less scary when you stare it in the eyes and deal with it. Moreover, you are in a more powerful position when you are proactive rather than reactive. Reactive responses are often counterproductive, and you are more likely to disregard your personal needs and interests, giving the other party a greater advantage in the negotiation. Feelings of resentment, regret, and despair will quickly set in, leaving you feeling powerless, victimized, and taken for granted. Conflict management consultants are trained to support and guide you through many types of personal, professional, and organizational challenges.

Conflict competence is the ability to exercise emotional intelligence, cognitive functions, and behavioral decision-making skills to produce positive conflict outcomes while mitigating further escalating the dispute or deterring a violent response. It sounds easy enough, but it is not. High conflict competence requires self-awareness, situational awareness, empathy, effective communication, and understanding basic human behaviors and relationship dynamics. Conflict competence is an authentic response to a human event. People aren’t born conflict competent; instead, this skill is learned and developed over time. Conflict competent persons understand the following:

1. Power vs. Force: power is gentle, whereas force is an abuse of power
2. Peace isn’t passive: wanting peace doesn’t mean accepting unjust attitudes, behaviors, and circumstances. And, “fighting” for peace does not mean using violent means to achieve goals. Peace is an engaging and assertive force to be reckoned with.
3. Creative Problem-Solving: if there is a will, there is a way.
4. I am We, and We are I: human beings are communal creatures. We cannot survive alone; so, the community is important. Collaboration, not competition, is how the human species will survive.

Too often, leaders within organizations miss opportunities to strengthen internal working relationships, because they make these common mistakes:

• Value hierarchical relationships over director reports
• Ignore/dismiss conflict between direct reports
• Fail to delegate because they want to ensure standards are met
• Hiring a “body” instead of the right “person” for the job
• Non-transparent communication

Remember: The enemy within will destroy you faster than an external enemy – your competitors.
