When NOT to Avoid Conflict

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Conflict in the workplace is something that most of us dislike, and therefore avoid. Often, we would rather avoid a conflict rather than deal with problematic issues, but if we fail to act, the problem will only get worse.

 

Consider Matt. He managed a sales department for a large insurance agency and he avoided conflict with staff at any cost. When he made the nicest of suggestions and was met with resistance, Matt would either change the subject or just say it was no big deal. He was afraid that any confrontation or conflict would escalate into a shouting match. So, whether customers’ quotations were late, staff arrived tardy, or procedures were not followed, Matt would not address the issues.

Sound familiar?

 

Procrastination is epidemic in the workplace. Learning to effectively manage a procrastinator is important for any manager. Scripture tells us, "Teach us to make the most of our time, so that we may grow in wisdom" (Psalm 90:12 NLT) and we must insist that staff make the most of their time.

Business Change in Turbulent Times

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Business leaders focus a lot of energy on the future, looking forward and planning accordingly. However, Scripture tells us that the future is at best unpredictable. King Solomon writes, "Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth" (Proverbs 27:1, NIV), and James writes, "How do you know what will happen tomorrow?" (James 4:14, NLT).
