New Programs and Budget Cuts
Integration of new programs or budget cuts is likely to affect the entire team as they are practical situations of creating productive or unproductive conflicts. It is essential to acknowledge that the most profound disputes frequently seem to engage money, labor disputes over worker wages, and family problems regarding assets. Since money is a finite resource, these problems emerge to be single-issue battles that one individual’s problem is the other party loss (Desai, Acs & Weitzel, 2013). However, conflicts engaging finances often engages much great cause of conflict including the feeling that a particular party is being overlooked or disrespected. It is therefore appropriate that managers take their time to explore every employee’s broader concerns, grievances and try creating effective ways to address these emerging problems. New programs, on the other hand, create a negative feeling where workers will often feel exploited and trained to over-perform.
