The Cost of Conflict When Avoided

Not engaging in conflict will create a non-stop cycle of repeating patterns.

These patterns usually are managing or diffusing the situation, and they require a great investment of time and money. Tough conversations must be part of life, to address and solve a conflict. Engaging in a healthy conflict will help teams and individuals make decisions faster. The first step is to start talking about each one’s experiences, dealing with conflict.

We want you to learn that conflict can help you grow and become the best version of yourself.
