The C3 way of dealing with conflict is to run at it. We have a company line that we share with those who call C3 their home. It is "you need to go and talk to the person and if you don't feel comfortable I will go with you".
When someone is complaining - we give the company line. When someone is gossiping - we give the company line. When someone starts a Facebook fire - yep, company line.
Conflict, when dealt with properly, can be incredibly productive. It can help things get better, it can teach us better communication skills and it can help us grow and look more like Jesus.
My point: We believe the enemy of unity is not conflict but unresolved, ignored, un dealt with or mishandled conflict.
If we don't deal with it immediately, it has a better chance of growing and getting out if control.
Come on, say it with me: you need to go and talk to the person and if you don't feel comfortable I will go with you
