One of the most important tools in a manager’s kit are critical people skills, particularly with conflicts
Is there a conflict you’ve been putting off addressing? Maybe something that is stalling your career? Make a commitment here and now to have the difficult conversations.
Is there anything you’re looking the other way on to avoid a conflict? Promise yourself that beginning right now you’re going to stop avoiding conflict and start having the tough conversations that you’ve been putting off. Who knows, maybe it’ll save a life, or even advance your career.
