Causes of Conflict – Part I

Since the level of conflict in our culture seems to be rising, this week I want to share some of the primary causes of conflict in the workplace. Anger is the first one.

Some people are situationally angry, others are more persistently angry. Years ago, I worked with a persistently angry person.

Many days this person could be pleasant, but there was a simmering anger below the surface. If someone slighted or crossed them, the anger could erupt in a moment’s notice.

This usually led to ongoing conflict and fear in the workplace. This negatively impacted communication and collaboration within the organization.

Proverbs 29:22 says, “An angry person stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered person commits many sins.”

At some point, an angry person needs warned, if unrepentant then dismissed.
