Conflicts are inevitable in every human relationship. They are a natural feature of human communication that managers often have to deal with among their employees on a daily basis. Conflicts need not be seen as negative; however, if not resolved effectively, they can have devastating effects on employee morale,productivity,  and customer relations.

On the flip side, effectively resolving conflicts boosts employee productivity, creativity and attitude to work. An amicable atmosphere at the workplace is essential for increased productivity and output on the part of employees thus making conflict management essential to the success and growth of any company.
