"My coworker and I had a misunderstanding about the schedule. We both got frustrated, so I took a step back and asked if we could talk about it when we are both calm so that the tension didn't escalate. The next day I pulled him aside and asked if we could talk. We both shared our sides of the story and realized it was just a miscommunication."
Picture yourself in the back of the bakery in a tiny kitchen with no windows, tension rising high like the yeast in your sourdough bread! In a high-stress work environment with so many moving parts and people involved, you need to be able to keep your cool. This not only benefits you, but it also helps the morale of your team. When you're asked a question about dealing with conflict or overcoming a challenge, think of an example first. Having a concrete situation to draw from will help you to think through the steps you take to deal with conflict.
