Just because conflict happens, doesn’t mean that it is always a bad thing. That Leader will know whether the conflict is destructive or is constructive.

How do you tell when a conflict is destructive?

That Leader will know that a conflict is destructive when the team is supposed to be working on goal setting and instead wind up in the middle of an argument that takes attention away from the purpose of the meeting. If someone is having a problem and decides that the meeting is the place to air it, That Leader needs to take control of the meeting back, offer to meet with the argumentative person later and return to the topic.

Every project, every team and every team leader on all levels are going to come in contact with conflict. What That Leader needs to learn is how to spot it in others in order to minimize, divert or resolve it as soon as possible.

What are some conflict indicators?

Probably the most obvious indication is body language. If the team member is unhappy about something, his body language will be guarded, turned from the leader, he will have minimal eye contact with the leader and even show micro-expressions of mocking or frowning. A leader in the midst of conflict will show the same either to his up-line team or to his team members.  That Leader will study body language in order to become conscious of the meanings of what he sees, but even an uninformed leader will subconsciously be aware of the signs and know there is a problem, even if he is only aware of it in his gut.

To be That Leader you need vision to be successful. What does the idea of having a vision mean in terms of leadership to you?

When I looked up the idea of leadership and vision, I was not sure exactly what having vision meant. Here’s what I learned. Vision has many varieties of definitions, but they all include a mental image or picture, an orientation toward the future and some of the qualities of direction or goal. Being a person whose primary sense is feeling I know now I was stymied by an aspect of leadership that is visual.
