Conflict is an experience most people have in common. Yet how people deal with conflicts can vary widely and have a major impact on whether we feel effective and happy in our jobs and at home. When we run into difficult situations with clients, co-workers or superiors, it can feel stressful. Working from home and dealing with new workplace and business realities stemming from COVID-19 makes being conflict resilient more important than ever.
