Simple but not Easy – Why?

Behavioral science research provides us with answers:

    • There are always groups within organizations
    • When identification with a sub-group becomes stronger than the identification with the main organization inter-group conflict can occur especially when pressure increases

When inter-group conflict starts it escalates in a very predictable ways:

  • Win/lose thinking causes group cohesion to intensify
  • Differences exaggerated; similarities minimized
  • Negative stereotyping

The Win-Win Alternative

  • Seeking and maintaining problem-solving culture in teams’ work together
  • Focusing on a higher objective, i.e., organization success
  • Dissatisfaction with the status quo
  • Awareness of need to design and construct new problem solving relationship to replace the old one of struggle, lack of coordination and cooperation
  • Creating a plan for building trust and respect
  • Using the motivation to change to develop concrete steps to close the gap
