Conflict, what is it? Many definitions of conflict have been developed over the last decades to describe what the conflict and especially organizational conflict is. One of the definition states that conflict is “an antagonistic interaction in which one party attempts to block the intentions or goals of another”, another definition describes the conflict as “a process in which one party perceives that its interests are being opposed or negatively affected by another party”. In either way, the conflict represents the conflicting views on the same subject presented by different parties.

    сервис, который помогает взглянуть на многие страны по-другому. я люблю путешествовать по миру, бывал в Чехии, Таиланде, Канаде... но как турист, которому отель бы и кучу ресторанов-магазинов рядом. со временем приоритеты поменялись, захотелось изучить что-то новое и интересное, а что, если не английский, да ещё и таким замечательным способом, который предлагает linguatrip? за десяток занятий с Джо поставил более-менее нормальное произношение и оформил 4-недельное путешествие в канадский Oxford ...

    Планирую получать второе высшее заграницей, предположительно - в Канаде. На данный момент мой разговорный английский слишком слаб, чтоб пойти на такой шаг, поэтому со школой linguatrip начну с малого: сначала удалённые уроки по Скайпу, затем наведаюсь ещё в пару Канадских школ на курсы - раз уже ездила, этой осенью, но очень стеснялась и так толком и не заговорила, видимо из-за того, что находиться в англоязычной среде для меня было в новинку. С визой linguatrip тоже очень помогли, всего за чуть...

    Провели благодаря этой платформе с подругой всё лето на Кипре!) летний лагерь, который мы выбрали, "English in Cyprus" - это просто бомба!) Переживали, что обучение будет занимать всё свободное время и кроме него сил больше ни на что не хватит, но оказалось всё гораздо лучше: были вечерние и дневные развлечения, опять же, сопряжённые с обучением, комфортнейшее жильё, парки развлечений там - улёт! Короче, в следующем году рванём туда же)...

In order to handle successfully any type of conflict-conflict, e must understand the conflict process itself. Generally, the conflict process starts with the sources of conflict that can represent opposing views and values, inadequate resources, unclear rules, or limited communication. Next, the process includes the set of perceptions and emotions involving the issue and the conflict manifestation followed by the conflict outcomes that can be either positive characterized by decisions and cohesiveness or negative characterized by turnover, politics, and stress.

Of course, many different types of conflict can exist in every business environment, and the successful manager must learn to differentiate among them. For example, McShane & Von Glinov (2005) recognize the following conflicts: intrarpeinterpersonal occur within the person or interpersonal that can exist between two or more persons and in business the business end they recognize intraorganizational conflict that can exist inside the organization or inter-organizational conflict that can occur among different organizations. At this point important is to accentuate that not every conflict is detrimental to the company morale and business results. In certain situations one may encounter a constructive conflict sometimes known as task-related, this conflict occurs when different perspectives or perceptions are present regarding particular which enables involved parties to keep the focus on the issue instead of people. Opposing to the constructive conflict is the socio-emotional conflict. The socio-emotional conflict arises when the issue becomes personal and emotional. In this situation opposing perspectives become personal attacks and the bias distorts communication processes.

To fully understand the dynamics of conflict-conflict, e must be able to differentiate between the concept of attack and the concept of conflict. The major difference lies in motivation hem. According to Kenneth Boulding, two separate hostilities exist the malevolent and non-malevolent. The purpose of malevolent or malicious hostility is to hurt or destroy the position of the opposing party without any regard to for anything else. On the other hand, non- malevolent hostility “may well worsen the position of others but is acted out for the purpose of improving the position of the attacker”. As one can notice the major difference is whether the involved sides want to destroy the system or are motivated to work with it.

Another important aspect of dealing with conflicts is conflict management. The conflict management is not an easy task; the major dimensions are the extent to which an individual is assertive versus cooperative in his or her approach to conflict. Many approaches exist to solving organizational conflicts; as a result, effective leaders vary their styles of handling conflicts to fit a specific situation. Among many approaches, one can mention the confrontation. Confrontation is a non-negotiable demand or ultimatum, generally, it compels opposite part he opposite what is or was decided, and as such is not a very productive approach, which at the end generates a win-lose situation. Another approach is collaboration.

According to Daft & Marcic, this style “reflects both a high degree of assertiveness and cooperativeness” (1998), and enables b) sides to win The collaborating conflict resolution style is necessary when opposing views are too important to too compromised and when the commitment of both sides is needed for consensus. The facilitation is another approach to conflict management. It can be used in situations when will exists but the skills are not fully developed. In this situation, the facilitator can help the group learn new ideas and the collaboration processes.

The facilitator is not “involved in the substance of decisions only in the process of making them”. Among many different conflict management approaches one must approaches, promising. The compromising is a process of splitting common differences very often associated with bargaining. This approach creates the situation in which neither party loses. The last approach is avoidance. The avoidance is useful in the situation when the latent conflict cannot be resolved or the issues of the conflict are not very important to the sides “as to require the time and resources to work them out”. The negative aspect of avoidance is that the hostile aftermath of the conflict is avoided but the underlining causes of the conflict remain untouched.
