Have you ever watched a conflict between two other people at work and were reluctant to step in? Why is that? There are so many possible reasons:
- You don’t want to get in the middle of it.
- You’re unsure what to say.
- You don’t want one or both of them to be upset with you.
- You’re not a supervisor to either of the people in conflict.
- You’re afraid your approach will be too tough.
