Leadership Development: Conflict Management
The IREM Job Analysis identifies conflict management as one of the critical leadership competencies required of property and asset managers. One of the common myths is that conflict is inherently bad and should be minimized or avoided at all costs. On the contrary, properly managed conflict can lead to greater innovation, performance, and even improved cohesion within a team—creating an environment for open and honest discussions. Of course, if it’s not managed properly, conflict can also have the opposite results.
