There are two types of workplace conflict:
- You Conflict: I don't like you.
- Widget Conflict: I don't like your Widget.
If only workplace disputes were all Widget Conflict.
Focussed on better Widgets.
Instead – and despite how we usually argue our position - most workplace conflict is us feeling frustrated that our boss isn’t helping us to produce our Weekend Widget.
If it really was about our Weekday Widget…then who cares more about that our boss?
Never care more about something than the boss does.
