Susan attended a departmental meeting to discuss new attendance policies and clinical guidelines. The discussion became quite heated, with the department dividing into two groups arguing different sides of the policy issues. By the end of the meeting, a consensus had been reached with both sides satisfied with the resolution. In fact, there was some good-natured joking between several team members afterward.
However, later that day during lunch, one of Susan’s coworkers started talking about the meeting and how uncomfortable and upset it made her feel. The coworker stated that she does not like it when people argue and did not know why “we all just can’t get along.” What could Susan say to her coworker about conflict to make her feel better?
