More often than not, organizations and teams seek to develop issue prevention strategies after destructive episodes of conflict have transpired. This is a worthwhile and necessary reason to employ conflict management skills; however, it is not a particularly cost-effective approach. Resolving current conflicts is imperative. If, however, we only learn to address the most destructive episodes of conflict and we neglect to learn strategies to prevent future conflicts, we will only reduce the associated costs by a mere fraction of that which is possible. SCI emphasizes prevention activities that set-up your organization or team for sustainable success.
What Causes the Most Pain?
Why wait for issues to arise if we can predict and prevent many of them by leveraging best practices understood through years of research and analysis? Why not invest in proactive and positive solutions instead of wasting valuable resources and tarnishing reputations with investigations, terminations, and post-mortems?
Limit The Cost and Impact of Destructive Conflict
Administrators, coaches, athletes, and supports all feel the pain when destructive sports conflict arises. Compliance issues, hazing, bullying, team conflict, legal issues, relationship issues, poor locker room culture all undermine opportunity for success and cost money, wins, and immeasurable reputational equity. Typically, the cost of prevention activities pay for themselves by preventing just one incident over the next 5 years.
