The 5 Most Common Causes Of Conflict For A Manager

Keep a continual look-out for the Big 5 causes of conflict in any workplace and be prepared to deal with the consequences!

  1. The Individual: attitudes, personality characteristics/particular needs or stress levels
  2. Personal friendships: relationships and romance in the workplace, potential conflict between the informal and formal organisation
  3. The Group: group skills, team roles, patterns of interaction and group norms
  4. The Organisation: communication lines, authority structure, leadership style and managerial behaviour
  5. The Age Gap: relationships between older employees and younger managers where there is a clash between experience on the one side and power on the other

Keep vigilant and deal with any such conflicts as and when they present themselves.

Good Luck!
