Communicating effectively and managing conflicts
Communication is an essential part of our working life. Through communication, people share information and create meaning. Effective communication is also inherent to good work relationships and becomes a pre-requisite for day to day activities such as leading, planning and organizing and providing feedback for instance. At times poor or ineffective communication can create conflict. The solution is to replace poor communication practices which exacerbate conflict by more effective ones which can mitigate it.
