How is conflict like water?

They both are creative.
If you try to contain them – pressure builds.
If you ignore small indications of a problem in 
the early stages you set yourself up for big issues.
If there is no 
movement/engagement, there is stagnation.

The slideshow above shares data on how much mishandled conflict costs.  Eye opening!
