Conflict in teams is an interpersonal challenge occurring between two or more participants and negatively impact teamwork effectiveness. Conflicts result from an imbalance in goals, values, and perceptions (O’Neill et al., 2018). There are two categories of conflict in teams: substantive conflicts and emotional conflict. Substantive conflicts arise from tasks, goals, and resource allocation. Further, emotional conflict results from personality differences, envy, jealousy, annoyance, and insecurity. Sources of conflict arising from the two categories include personality clashes, poor communication, unfair treatment, warring cliques, leader dominance, diversity, complex attitudes, and competition over resources.
