Being in a challenging professional relationship is stressful and exhausting. Whether you are in conflict yourself or you are managing people who are, you will know that disputes between colleagues are destructive, difficult to manage and demoralising for those involved and the rest of the team. Conflict is also time consuming and frequently renders the business less productive.

Discord at work can happen between peers, someone senior or junior or with clients. If you are you in conflict or attempting to manage others who are, the nature and relentlessness of it can cause you to question your self-belief, choices and decisions.
How executive coaching can help manage conflict at work
In a safe and confidential environment where you can be entirely authentic, we will unravel the unhealthy dynamic. Whatever has caused the animosity, resistance or rivalry deserves to be understood. Then we will be able to form ideas and strategies as to how you might choose to relate differently with your work rival or manage the colleagues in conflict. It’s important to remember that we cannot change the unreasonable behaviour of another, we can only change ourselves, so being open-minded and willing to consider different ideas will be key in order to create improvement.
