About the book

Conflict is understood differently by different parties. Conflict is not always negative as the traditional view of conflict shows it. The traditional view on conflict shows that conflict is something bad and should never take place, it is harmful and should be avoided. It is related to the terms of violence destruction and irrationality. It is seen as a dysfunction resulting from poor communication, lack of openness, and trust between the persons in conflict. The Human Relations perspective on conflict shows that conflict is normal when two or more parties interact. It is a natural occurrence and it is inevitable. The Human Relations view encourages the acceptance of conflict. The Interventionist view on conflict shows that conflict can be positive because it puts people to competition and this can be positive in organizational settings but up to a certain point where if it escalates, conflict becomes very bad. This view separates functional conflict from dysfunctional and shows that if there is no conflict, people tend to be apathetic, static, nonresponsive to the changes, needs, and improvements in an organizational setting.

This book will look at conflict in organizations, its causes, its models, and separates between the functional and dysfunctional types of conflicts and the way to deal with them. This book will show the causes behind a conflict the triggering events behind, the tensions it creates, and the expression of conflict and how all this will have an impact on the organization's performance and the people working in it.

It will also show the emotions affected by conflict and the consequences of the organization's emotional norms and individual family norms.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
