Every culture has its ‘accepted’ way of dealing with conflict. Because this cultural conditioning is implicit most people are not aware of what their style is or that other conflict styles, acquired through the social-cultural learning, even exist.

According to Gallup’s research, US businesses are losing between $250-300 billion annual in lost productivity due to workplace conflict and misunderstandings.
