Some people love confrontation; others avoid it. Stay away from both types of people.
Who wants to be around someone that loves confrontation? The drama is draining, energy sucking, and focus defeating. Surround yourself with positive people that add to your energy and your life.
On the other hand, be wary of the confrontation avoiders, especially in the workplace. Those people will not be 100% candid with you or challenge you when you need it. Also, certain jobs or items may fall through the cracks due to their tendency to avoid confrontation. Surround yourself with people that challenge you and help you get the job done, no matter how painful.
A healthy dose of constructive confrontation is key.
