Every individual perceives and identifies situations differently. A situation that may not necessarily affect one may be more significant to another. Conflict arises in every organization because of differing opinions that generally lead to arguments and will most likely lead to uncomfortable circumstances.

?In the context of organizational behavior, conflict may be defined as a circumstance in which one party negatively affects or seeks to negatively affect another party. Conflict can be observable or perceived. Conflict and negotiation are closely related concepts, in that both suggest that two parties are involved, and both seek to impose their will or gain in a disputed situation? (Baack, 2012, ?7.3?).

Conflict is a part of life and occurs among coworkers, family members, neighbors, and friends. Settling conflicts will depend largely on the understanding of the situation. Often times when team members are brought together with opposing beliefs, values, perspectives, backgrounds, personalities, and different communication styles conflicts can become extremely problematic and disconcerting.

If conflict goes unresolved the results could be disastrous causing loss of productivity, forfeiture of innovation, and no cooperation among the team members. How conflict is handled will have a direct impact on the organization and the individuals involved, and will also determine future relationships among team members, and other individuals who may be indirectly involved with the project.

The first assignment for the team was establishing guidelines with a team charter. Each individual in the team would fill out this charter and a collective team charter was made. This charter involved setting clear standards and guidelines to be followed. [...]


[...] If the instructor were also involved in the negotiation process she could have confirmed the importance of the team charter and stated that failure to comply would result in further consequences. This could have created harmony within the team. Collaboration could have been used to find a solution that parties could agree to create a common goal that clearly was misunderstood by the student who was not performing. The instructor to help others with his or her own thoughts and opinions also could have used generosity and kindness. [...]
