Many people spend a large part of their time at work interacting with other members of staff and managers. Relationships can breakdown with adverse consequences for both the individuals concerned and business. The causes of these difficulties include:
- Personality clashes
- Different expectations
- Different values
- Resentment and grudges
- Personal aggression
- Preferential treatment or bias
- Poor communication
The consequence of these issues can be serious for all concerned and can affect health, absenteeism, productivity and quality.
