In business, not every dispute needs to feel like this...

Over at CEDR no expense was spared to research the real cost of conflict to British business.

In addition to producing a poster worthy of a Greenpeace campaign they also found the cost to be a whopping £33 billion.

The good folks at CEDR then went the extra distance and found:

1. Over a third of managers would rather parachute jump for the first time (35%) than address a problem with their team at work, and just under a third would rather shave their head for charity (27%).
2. Many managers do not feel comfortable addressing conflict. Half (49%) would rather attend an event at which they knew no one than tell a client a home truth and over two thirds (69%) would rather send back a bottle of wine in a restaurant than confront a boss’s underperformance directly.
