What are the three most common conflicts in work teams.

The answer all depends on the make up of your organization. However a great question. I will answer based on what I most often see. Number one: relationship conflict between the team and the manager(s) Number two: Conflict betewen coworkers on the same team Number three: conflicts between two diferent teams, shifts, or departments

I find conflict in teams directly ties to defined roles and responsibilities, and accountabilities. When team members know "who is doing what" there is less likelihood for conflict and blame. When team members are held accountable for their contributions tied to team goals, members stay focus and develop a sense of ownership as well as a responsibility to the other members.
