Calming Conflict and encouraging happy and productive team work
by

Easing conflicts can be a tough hurdle to overcome in business, as there maybe a few varied personalities within the office, and unnecessary clashes may occur. If you were to introduce team building exercises or activities into working life and make time to do this once a month, or even quarterly, this will indeed play an important role in easing conflicts between colleagues as they will have time to build rapport with one another and bond through the planned activity. The best type of team-building exercises are obviously the ones that allow colleagues to get to know each other on a personal level, rather than a purely work level. There are many varieties of exercise you could try, but you could begin with role play exercises or situations where your employees can share interesting bits of information about themselves within the group.

If your employees do tend to be the constantly conflicting with one another in the office, you may want to host your team building activity away from the office environment so that they feel much more relaxed. A neutral location such as a park or a function room, or even a restaurant can divert away from the usual animosity between co-workers that usually arises.
