The Role of Conflicts in an Organisation

A conflict is not necessarily good or bad, but must be evaluated in terms of its individual and organisational functions and dysfunctions.

Conflict as a Catalyst for Change

Conflict is a catalyst for change which brings issues to the fore and allows for the inclusion of multiple actors. Moreover, conflict allows us to go beyond resolution and management of conflict because not all conflict can be resolved; instead it leads us to conflict transformation, where the positive side of conflict is addressed.

Advantages of Conflicts in Organisations

Conflict is essential in rising to a challenge because it is through conflict that our existing beliefs, habits, rituals and routines are questioned, tested and evaluated.
Conflict is necessary to stimulate passion: and passionate people drive success in every organisation.
The stimulation of conflict initiates the search for new means and goals and clears the way for innovation
The successful solution of a conflict leads to greater effectiveness, to more trust and openness, to greater attraction of members towards each other, and to depersonalization of future conflicts.
