The risk of avoiding confrontations

The risk of avoiding confrontations
In workplaces, conflicts are often and mostly they are as a result of lack of communication. If the disagreements are not handled they could negatively affect business. Managers should not avoid confrontations with employees but should quickly handle them if they want to change the face of the company. In workplaces, business people sometimes mistake between conflict and disagreement. Differences in opinions are known as disagreements and sometimes may or may not turn into conflict (Mitchell, 2015). This paper will discuss the risk of avoiding confrontations with a problem employee.
Generally, workplaces where conflict is not confronted, reflects poor management system. Unresolved conflict in a team shows there is a weakness in the management of a firm because the management is not able to come together and solve a problem that is reflected. As such, it is considered administrators fault of failing to recognize conflict or failing to seek resolution (Mitchell, 2015). It is the responsibility of the management to notice and handle conflict in an organization. Conflict should be handled directly by the management or through a professional human resource.
When confrontations are avoided in workplaces, it affects the employee’s performance and decreases productivity. When important feelings of an employee are suppressed, the results are low morale, distrust, and stress. It may also result in division among the employee’s and sometimes they form teams depending on various matters like opinions and favoritism which results in an unhealthy business environment. A business team that is divided results in the inability to ineffective production. As such employee’s performance in the workplace reduces due to strained relationships in workplaces (Chamila, 2017). It is thus important to confront the employee’s unexpected behavior as the manager to avoid positive outcomes productivity for all involved employees.
In conclusion managers and heads of work, places are very crucial in confronting the employees. They should never avoid confrontation and should notice every performance problem that is facing the organization. Additionally, they should communicate regularly with employees so that they can easily spot the conflict. When handling confrontation managers should avoid unhealthy confrontation behavior that can result in conflict to take care of the problem immediately.
