Conflict.  Can I confess I hate that word?  I don’t understand people who have the ability to just “go at it” and be laughing five minutes later.

Yes, I’m a people pleaser.  “People pleasing” has to be a term developed by dysfunctional and angry people who don’t get along with anyone and tried to make the rest of us feel bad.  After all, what’s wrong with wanting to please people?  People pleasers don’t have a problem.  It’s the people who don’t please people that have problems.  I’ve seen a lot of them over the years and I have a word for them – unemployed.

So People Pleasers – Unite!!!

BUT, as much as it pains me I have to admit you conflict people are right.  Conflict done well makes everyone and every organization better.  But they are called tough conversations because they are tough.
