Definition Interaction of interdependent people who perceive incompatible goals, aims, and values and who see the other party as potentially interfering with the realization of these goals. 3 “I’s” of Conflict: Interaction, Interdependence, Incompatible goals The reason conflict exists
Levels of Organizational Conflict Intergroup Conflict: Aggregates of people within an organization (e.g. work teams, departments) as parties in the conflict Interorganizational Conflict: A dispute between two or more organizations
Phases of Conflict 1) Latent conflict: the conditions are ripe for conflict because of the three “I’s” (i.e. different personalities) 2) Perceived conflict: one or more of the parties believes that incompatibilities and interdependence exist 3) Felt conflict: parties begin to formulate strategies about how to deal with the conflict (i.e. should I go to my boss; talk to the other party; avoid) 4) Manifest conflict: strategies and goals are enacted in communication (i.e. filed a grievance with HR; confronted the opposing party) 5) Conflict aftermath: short- and long-term consequences—what did the conflict do to the relationship?
