Are you Sensitive about Conflicts at Work?

Conflict sensitivity is being able to realize that the reactions, actions, words or behaviors of one person could trigger a conflict either with another or a group of people. The workplace is one such environment where individual differences and perceptions could easily lead to either overt or covert conflicts. It is therefore helpful to gauge how sensitive we are to others so that we do not trigger conflicts with our workmates. Rate yourself against the following parameters and score your conflicts sensitivity mark.

Use of Vernacular:
Are you keen on using you vernacular whenever you are engaged in a chat with colleague with whom you share a mother tongue? As you engage in the vernacular chat, do you realize that there are other people in the office who do not understand what you are talking about and who may feel left out in the conversation? In cases where you were chatting in your mother tongue with a friend and a colleague from another community joins you, do you consider it courteous to change the language top one that everyone can understand or do you continue regardless of whether the colleague understand what you are saying or not?

Are you kind of person who generously opens up their mouth and utters whatever comes to mind about other people? Are you always itching to leave the office over tea or lunch breaks so that you can tell others the latest ‘hot news’ about your other colleagues or even your boss? Does it bother you that you rarely first seek to confirm the truth about some of the allegations you level against your colleagues.

Do you usually think twice before uttering certain words to your colleagues sometimes in unpalatable language? Is it important to realize that people come from different backgrounds with strong convictions on certain issues? Do the differences in religious affiliations, tribal orientations and social backgrounds strike you as important when relating with people? Do you make quick accusations of other people without clearly appreciating the reasons for their behavior? Are you quick in making generalizations about people around you? If you have more than three positive responses to all the issues raised above, you may need to consider getting a workplace mentor to help you become more conflict sensitive.
