In the workplace you will get a wide mix of different people from society and so on that basis then you are going to get very strongly opposing views and opinions coming to the forefront. This can be a major breeding ground for arguments, personality clashes and difficulties overall and this can be terribly frustrating for the remainder of the personnel who are not involved in the process, yet, however your dynamic may currently be a fun group game could break the ice.
However annoyed or perturbed they may feel by the discord that is raging around them, this pales in comparison in regards to the ill ease that their manager will undoubtedly feel during the course of such an issue. The manager will have to act as a makeshift diplomat, negotiator, surrogate parent and team leader in order to resolve conflict and ensure a happy, productive outcome for all.
However, this is a task easier said than done and in reality there is not always a clear cut path to progress. Often, an attempt to intervene, no matter how well-intended can be wrongfully received and can actually inflame a situation even more than before.
Group games have shot to the forefront as a reliable and productive means of resolving issues in the workplace. Designed to be fun and with low pressure stakes, these group games still present enough of a challenge to the participants in order to allow them to continue their work and see if they cannot make some headway with the people they struggle to get on with.
Group games may seem like a fairly counter productive means of resolving the issue at stake, but in reality they can seriously improve things dramatically. They will force the people to rely and trust on one another, and they will allow them to actually get to know one another on a more deeply personal basis.
