Disagreements At Work

Amy Jen Su, managing partner of Paravis Partners and co-author of Own the Room, proposes to focus on something other than the potential damage that a disagreement can cause to your relationship. Think about the needs of companies: why is your disagreement an important debate? How will this help the organization, your team, or the project you`re working on? To be mixed, it is about you; Wanting the best for the company or team is much less selfish. As I said, we humans are emotional creatures. It`s pretty easy for us to fit into emotions. But that`s the biggest mistake you can make when faced with conflict in the workplace. You need to be clear with your judgment and not let emotions take over. Because emotions, when they take power, force a person to make false judgments. Instead of trying to avoid conflict, you see it as an opportunity to learn and grow as a team. A successful solution to conflicts in the workplace can strengthen the bonds between people. It can lead to creative ideas and remarkable innovations that might not have been discovered if no conflict had arisen. When I was working as a business consultant, I had a client that I thought was difficult.

Let`s call her Marguerite. She and I did not see each other on an equal footing. I didn`t agree with the direction she was leading our project, the people she was taking, and the pace at which she thought we had to do our job (why did she have to leave so slowly?). But since she was the client and I was just starting out in my career, I didn`t think it was my place to openly contradict her. .
