"Conflict is any situation in which there are incompatible goals, cognitions, or emotions within or between individuals or groups that lead to opposition or antagonistic interaction."

Another definition of conflict is "any situation in which there are incompatible goals, cognitions, or emotions within or between individuals or groups that lead to opposition or antagonistic interaction" (DeJanasz, Dowd & Schneider, 2001, p. 242). Since conflict is an inevitable part of human interaction, it is important for an organization to succeed to understand types of conflict and their sources.
