Conflict is a natural part of any environment, and when teams aren’t equipped to handle it, it can really take a toll on culture and productivity. It can feel unavoidable and inevitable, due in part to issues like miscommunication, lack of communication, misinformation, not considering others, or just avoiding the problem altogether.

In the constantly changing world of education today, leaders are dealing with more turnover, disruptions, unprofessional culture, and reduced productivity than usual.
