My particular focus for research: Productivity and Conflict

Getting the relationship between productivity and conflict right is a prerequisite of effective leadership:

The conflict culture must be set up to work for, not against the organisation. 

Leaders must seek to become highly effective and confident at managing difficult but critical conversations.

This is possible by actively nurturing constructive conflict and crucially, reducing the time and energy lost through toxic conflict.

My Conflict Confident Leadership™ and Conflict-Confident Teams™ programmes can help you develop a culture of healthy conflict.

Hang on –
when is conflict ever ‘good’?

Maximising the amount of time we spend in constructive conflict is essential for effective effort:

Conflict can be constructive when you are able to manage the act of welcoming diverse perspectives.

A disagreement or clash of ideas, feelings or thoughts isn’t automatically a bad thing.

Destructive or toxic conflict is the active rejection of diverse perspectives.

Effective effort is a precondition of progress, innovation and growth. Without it, ideas go unchallenged, opportunities may be missed and flaws in plans aren’t spotted.

Greater perspective gives us the chance to make our ideas more ambitious and robust, and more likely to be successfully realised.
