There are four types of conflict in the workplace. They are conflicted over tasks, conflict overpays, and conflict over beliefs. These types of conflicts can occur in all workplaces, but they tend to surface more at the start of a project or during a period of high stress. All four types of conflict in the workplace need to be identified and avoided. When these types of conflict appear in a workplace they can result in severe interruptions to the flow of work and increase the likelihood of mistakes and injuries.
