I want my coffee in my hands before 7:45 AM so I can get to work on time, but the line is long at Starbucks.
I want my team to gel around our strategic vision but they keep asking questions and don’t seem to feel confident about their roles.
I want recognition for my hard work on the project but my client points out a mistake.
I want cheap gas but the prices keep going up.
Conflict, at the most basic level, is a difference between what I want and what I am currently getting.
