Team Conflict Conflict exists in nature and, by extension, in all human relationships. Conflict can be something to avoid or embrace, or a more neutral approach can be taken. You will lead a group discussion on the subject among your peers. You decide that to generate a lively discussion, it is important to create a level of understanding of the role of conflict in groups and how conflict can be used to move a group forward. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas: • After doing some research on the topic of conflict, propose to your peers a position, and discuss the concept of conflict in teams. • Is conflict something to avoid or embrace? • Use examples from either your personal experience or from the literature that would support your position.
