Managing Team Conflict
Instructions and References
You are a manager of a work team of ten people in various generations. Anthony is 24 and a relatively new employee to your company and your team. He’s definitely thought to be an asset to both. He is very talented, works hard and shows much potential. The company believes he will have great opportunities and doesn’t want to lose him. His work is completed and done well, and he contributes to team goals. He comes into the office late and often leaves early which bothers several of your older employees to see Anthony’s behavior as showing a lack of commitment to the company and disregard for the understood working hours. Heather has worked in the company for seven years.. She prefers to complete projects on her own even when the assignment calls for her to work with others. Her work meets team deadlines and is done as expected. She seldom participates in discussions in team meetings but does not claim credit for completing the assignment alone. Arthur, a twenty-five-year employee, think Anthony is a slacker and Heather is not being “team player,” and Anthony and Heather think that Arthur micromanages. They often refuse to work on team projects with each other. What strategies might you use to help them understand each other and to work together as a team?
In a paper, using at least three scholarly resources, discuss the strategies you will impose to bring your team members together as a cohesive and productive team.
