Role of conflict management and coaching techniques

It has been established in management literature and practice that conflict is inevitable in workplace
settings which could stir up negative emotions when not well manged. Even though conflict may be perceived as
a negative thing, not all conflicts are negative. In fact, conflicts can arise between co- workers, supervisors and
subordinates or often between employees and external stakeholders, such as customers, suppliers and regulatory
agencies. Managing conflict is a key management competency and should be studied and practiced so as to
develop effective conflict management skills to maintain a positive workplace relationship with colleagues and
create a healthy work environment.
