Often when we hear the word conflict, we think about it in terms of an interaction with another human being. However, the individual that we are most often at odds with is ourselves. Because we tend to move quickly through these disagreements, we may not even notice them. For example,
Do you get up and go to the gym or do you hit the snooze button?
Do you take the unexpected “free time” from a meeting ending early to plot out a project or do you peruse social media?
Do you have the conversation with the employee who has just turned in a subpar work product or do you correct it yourself?
