From tarnished rapport to squeamish behavior.
Conflict and misconduct can cripple a business. Failing to respond appropriately can kill it altogether.
In business, time is money. Unfortunately, conflict and misconduct waste time and cost money, too.
Regardless of the industry and economic footprint of a particular business, all are susceptible to becoming contentious environments defined by toxic workplace culture. Challenges come in many different forms and decision-makers rarely possess the necessary skills to deal with them effectively.
Conflict and misconduct may look like harassing or sexually charged communication, bullying, poorly written or enforced policies, office affairs and inappropriate dating relationships, competing values, sex-based power distance and hierarchy, personality clashes, and other bad behavior.
In many cases, it's a combination of all these factors.
Left unaddressed, conflict leads to increased costs, decreased productivity, low employee morale, high turnover, and ultimately, poor stakeholder engagement, lost credibility, and lost reputational capital.
As a confidential partner to your organization, we work closely with your decision-makers to mitigate the fallout that comes with conflict and misconduct. Whether we work with impacted individuals or teams, we provide comprehensive services designed to get your organization back on track.
