1. When Titans Tussle, Organizations Fall
When leaders don’t get along, your entire organization suffers. Perhaps you hoped they’d work it out, or maybe you tried a sit-down chat with them. But they still struggle to communicate and work together. Their issues affect the people around them and threaten key outcomes. These are among your best mission-critical people, but the organization may stumble if they don’t work it out.
2. High Stakes Discord
You keep hoping that it won’t get worse between these employees. The tension and distraction are bad enough. But there are also real risks to your organization when employees get bogged down by conflict. You might already measure the costs in lost opportunities, missed deadlines, a fumbled presentation, lost productivity, unwanted publicity, a potential lawsuit…it can be a lengthy list. You’ve listened to your employees’ concerns and intervened when you could. You may have decreed it’s time to get along and get back to work. But despite your best efforts, clashes continue, feelings smolder, and damages climb.
