Unit 5 Announcement – Unhealthy Agreements and Reducing Conflict_x000D_
In this unit, we will discuss how to overcome unhealthy agreements and find successful ways to manage conflict within teams. Typically, unhealthy agreements occur when a worker opts to respond positively to the first suggestion a team member makes simply to keep peace and remain positive. This creates a pattern where decisions are made which have not been scrutinized or fully supported by a group. Consequently, this often leads to poor decision-making and inadequate team performances (Dyer, Dyer, & Dyer, 2013)._x000D_
One of the critical components of successful organizational communication internally and externally is getting the message to the listener with the same intention as the sender desired. For us to reduce conflict within our organization, we need to communicate clearly and make every effort to check and double-check that the message is clear and on track. Finding the necessary methods to resolve conflict and encouraging everyone to have a positive, open-minded attitude regarding future milestones is important for any business striving to achieve fundamental goals and organizational excellence (Dyer et al., 2013)._x000D_
