Mind Your Farm Business — Ep 59: Learning to lead through conflict

In leadership, aggressive behaviour can actually be less harmful to business than passivity. In other words, being unwilling to discuss a problem is actually more detrimental that having an argument about it.

But just knowing that doesn’t make dealing with conflict any easier says Kelly Dobson, chief leadership officer at LeaderShift. In this Mind Your Farm Business podcast, Dobson and host Shaun Haney discuss different types of conflict, how to navigate personality differences, and why not all conflict has to be viewed as negative.

Dobson shares that it’s common for people in a business to feel confused and emotional during conflict, especially if one person believes they are talking and the other, instead, views it as fighting. Ultimately, the goal for any leader is to seek clarity on an issue not just for them but also for each member of their team.

Listen on for how leadership in conflict shapes day-to-day farm business, but also the much larger discussion of farm transition.
