The International Association of Business Communicators has published an article of mine in their monthly CW Bulletin.
Here’s an excerpt from 5 Conflict Resolution Skills to Move Your Career Forward:
Good conflict resolution skills don’t just make life a little smoother. They can also help advance your career by influencing others’ perception of your leadership potential. While we can all point to someone who has moved up the career ladder despite an abundance of bad behaviors, odds are you won’t be like them if you have more career-stalling conflict behaviors than career-enhancing ones.
Classic career-stalling behaviors include the drive to win at all costs, displaying anger ineffectively, retaliating and carrying grudges, and avoiding conflict. Here are five career-enhancing conflict behaviors that will help keep you upwardly mobile, improve all parts of your life and make you a superb communicator.
You can read about the five career-enhancing conflict behaviors online here.
Thanks to IABC’s Amanda Aiello for inviting me to write an article for the bulletin.
