TEAM BUILDING 2 Conflict is inevitable. Conflict is when one party perceives its interests are being opposed or set back by another party (Kinicki & Kreitner 2009, p. 276). Because people come to any given situation with individual ideas, visions, values, and goals, conflict will arise. If handled properly, conflict can move a group to creative solutions that may potentially result in greater outcomes. The values that flow from individuals are power, perfectionism, and getting things are closely related. These values feed aggression and they feed off one another as well. Imagine these three values present in a group situation. When we feel powerless we tend to feel worthless, which then makes us feel more powerless. The change happens when individuals help themselves by helping others, and then they help others by helping themselves. This helps individuals need to see that it is happening in their lives for it to make sense and then they start to believe. The desire for power and control is the desire to “win” and is a driving force in many team situations. Perfectionism is the desire to believe we are perfect. Often this results in individuals trying to make other believe they are perfect. Perfection can be looked at in many ways: never losing an argument, never making mistakes, or always looking good. The drive to get things and hold onto things is closely tied to the need for power and perfection. We are often taught to define ourselves by what we have or what we do for a living. All of these issues play a big part of what an individual brings into a team environment. Team building exercises are designed to build trust, rapport, and respect.
