Conflict Management/Dealing with Difficult Behaviours

Managing conflict and dealing with difficult behaviours in the workplace can be tricky, complicated, and, stressful. Research confirms that managing conflict and dealing with difficult behaviours at work can lead to reduced productivity, morale, and can snowball into resentment and bitterness, to name a few. Because of these and other reasons, how we handle these issues in the workplace can set the tone of what the workplace culture will be like.
