Don't let unresolved issues drain the productivity from your teams!

Team Conflict Strategies Inventory (TCSI) provides an ideal opportunity for teams to work through issues and learn how to handle future conflicts more productively.

Teams have preferred ways of handling conflict. Some teams avoid conflict at all costs, while others find that the battle gives them energy and motivation. Start your teams on a discussion of how they choose to handle conflict - and what impact their behaviour is having on the success of their team - with TCSI.

All levels of teams can benefit from The Team Conflict Strategies Inventory. Teams have preferred ways of handling conflict. Some teams avoid conflict at all costs, while others find that the battle gives them energy and motivation. Start your teams on a discussion of how they choose to handle conflict - and what impact their behaviour is having on the success of their team - with the Team Conflict Strategies Inventory (TCSI).

The TCSI presents teams with 5 typical conflict scenarios. Administered in two phases, team members are first asked to predict individually how their team would handle each situation by ranking strategy alternatives. Then, the team as a whole comes together to try to reach consensus on the items. This approach allows individual team members to share their perceptions and come to conclusions about common strategies employed by the team.

Teams will:

• Identify their preferred strategy for handling conflict.

• Gain an understanding of 5 different conflict strategies.

• Learn the appropriate use of each strategy.

• Develop procedures for managing disagreements.

'Sometimes team disagreements can become serious conflicts, threatening the productivity or even the life of the group. But if a team can use effective strategies for handling conflict, conflict may afford new learning and eventually deeper, more productive relationships.'
