Behavioral issues in the workplace are inevitable. Whenever you have diverse groups of people working together, issues will arise. That’s because each employee brings to the workplace a unique set of attitudes, ideals and beliefs that may differ from that of their co-workers. In addition to behavioral issues, the negative impact of incivility and bullying in the workplace can affect your organization’s culture in monumental ways.
Unresolved behavioral issues often result in loss of revenue, lessening of productivity, stifling of creativity, and the creation of barriers to cooperation and collaboration.
Problematic behavior usually develops over time. As a manager, the more proactive you are in dealing with these problems, the more likely it is that you will increase your chances for a positive outcome. Issues that are avoided or ignored will only fester and grow into resentment.
The important issue is not whether there will be conflict in the workplace, but how we respond to it using different conflict resolution styles. Equally important are the communication skills we use in clarifying the conflict and defining the resolution. While dealing with conflict can be difficult and uncomfortable, it is vital that issues are acknowledged, assessed, and addressed immediately.
