“There are working relationships that are positive but unproductive. And there are working relationships that are productive but not positive. Both of these conditions create unhealthy situations in the workplace.”
Rubi Ho, Author of Many Parts, One Body
In most organizations, it’s easy to spot conflict within working relationships. It’s usually accompanied by a lack of collaboration, stalled productivity, operational bottlenecks, individual or team resentment, and even employee withdrawal.
What’s not so easy to spot are those working relationships that appear to function on the surface, but fail to produce meaningful results.
- Accountability is missing in a ‘too friendly’ superior/subordinate relationship.
- Creativity is lacking from a team more intent on ‘getting along’ versus challenging one another.
What organizations fail to realize is that these silent killers are equally as harmful to a company’s performance as unresolved conflict.

- Grow collaboration, support and communication
