Conflict can be defined according to its origin, source, and intensity. It is an intrinsic characteristic of humans. The origin of conflict is related to the origin of fighting or aggression in human history.

The conflicts between different groups are always complex and multi-dimensional. The source of conflict often depends on the disputed issue or problems that are presented in the context of specific conflicts over time.

Development: An Interdisciplinary Journal was established by Dr David Shenoy in 2011 to publish original research in humanities, social sciences, cognitive sciences & artificial intelligence related disciplines for interdisciplinary discussion with papers dealing with topics ranging from intercultural communication skills development to cultural diversity in design thinking to cultural competence in AI design.

The author, Prof. Kristin G. Lindenberger, discusses how we can handle conflicts in our personal and professional lives, and how we can avoid them when they happen.

The article is a mix of principles and practical hints to help us deal with conflicts when they inevitably come. It also includes some insights into the conflicts that occur in everyday life, such as relationship problems or disagreements between colleagues at work.

Conflict is a common challenge in the workplace. Often, this challenge results from differences in values and interests. It can be solved by finding ways to agree on issues and also resolving conflicts before they arise.
