When left unaddressed, they can lead to damaging effects on team dynamics, including a breakdown in communication, a lack of trust, and decreased productivity, all of which can ultimately fracture the team’s culture. Understanding the different types of team dynamics and conflicts that can arise is key to promoting positive and effective communication, and employing practical strategies for managing conflicts in the workplace can help ensure that teams work together cohesively and effectively to achieve their goals.
