Navigating Team Conflicts: Recognizing Your Triggers

Navigating Team Conflicts: Recognizing Your Triggers


Conflicts often escalate when student leaders feel triggered and their buttons get pushed during common organization discussions around topics like budgets, priorities, and campus dynamics.

Unexpectedly, they may feel strong, intense emotions that may feel overwhelming or disorienting.  

Often, they react in ways that are less effective and may shut down the conversation.

Mismanaged hot buttons can result in escalating conflict, deep misunderstanding, and resentment that can fester and create barriers to inclusion, collaboration, and productivity.
