Understanding conflict

Answer the following question. Conflict in the workplace is:
(a) avoidable, (b) preventable, (c) necessary, or; (d) all of the above.

Conflict is a natural and normal feature of the workplace. It occurs in every organisation. For any team that strives to attain its goals, conflict is inevitable. Although differences will occur, the outcome doesn’t have to be negative. Conflict can provide opportunities and challenges us to think harder, to be more creative, to develop greater understanding, and to search for alternative avenues that are more efficient, more effective, and more productive.
