Consider the relationship between leadership and management of conflict. How do these two concepts relate to each other?
Leadership and conflict management are related concepts because leaders are supposed to guide an organisation to overcome the crises that it faces. The ability of an organisation in resolving conflicts may be determined by the type of leaders it has. Good leaders create an organisational environment where conflicts are identified early and resolved effectively before they lead to organisational failure. As discussed subsequently, effective leadership is, therefore, a core determinant of an entity’s capacity to manage conflicts.
