Conflicts show the thought process and maturity of the people involved. In the passion of the moment, feelings and other emotions that most people try to hide get exposed. You can judge the strength and weakness of people in conflict and how much would they stand and fight for their cause. The arguments in conflict show their ideology and in the modern world their intelligence.
It also provides an opportunity for you to come on top and establish your superiority in terms of intelligence and leadership qualities. When the captain of a boat is confused and incapable of taking decisions, whoever takes charge of the ship rises to the level of captain and in no time will be the captain.
Conflicts are chaotic by their very nature but that does not mean one should be afraid of it. Not taking any side is a sign of fear which the modern day entrepreneurs should overcome. Fear of losing anything makes you a slave and slaves do not achieve much. Instead, one should embrace the opportunity of conflict and see destruction as the foundation of construction forged by your will. Machiavelli himself was tortured in a prison for 12 days before he retired in his estate and wrote the greatest political treatise which people read and follow.
