Conflicts are natural in all walks of daily life both at workplace and home. Thus, conflict is ever present and both charming and maddening. But conflict is a
complex and big subject. There are many sources of conflict. Conflict occurs when individuals or groups are not obtaining what they need or want and are seeking their own self-interest. Sometimes the individual is not aware of the need and unconsciously starts to act out. Other times, the individual is very aware of what he or she wants and actively works at achieving the goal.Conflict affecting organizations can occur in individual, between individuals, and between groups. Conflicts within work groups are often caused by struggles over control, status, and scarce resources. Conflicts between groups in organizations have similar origins. The constructive resolution of such conflicts can most often be achieved through a rational process of problem solving, coupled with a willingness to explore issues and alternatives and to listen to each other’s. The workplace conflict is described as the state of disagreement or misunderstanding, resulting from the actual or perceived dissent of needs, beliefs, resources and relationship between the members of the organization.A personal conflict involves a conflict between two people, most often from a mutual dislike or personality clash. The conflict causes for workplace conflict can be personality or style differences and personal problems such as substance abuse, childcare issues, and family problems. Organizational factors such as leadership, management, budget, and
disagreement about core values can also contribute. Primary causes of workplace conflict as poor communication, different values, differing interests, scarce resources, personality clashes, and poor performance. Many difficulties in this area are beyond the scope of management and more in the province of a professional counselor, or workplace mediator but there are some aspects of personal conflict that managers should understand and some they can possibly help remedy. Social conflict refers to interpersonal, intera group, and intergroup differences
