Behavior based interviewing can be an antidote to bad hiring

A mistake most companies commonly make is in attaching too much importance to and spending too much time on the skills and knowledge a candidate brings to a position and overlooking or sidelining attitudes and behaviors that are necessary for a candidate to perform at a consistently high level. Given that most involuntary terminations occur because of improper attitudes and behaviors; a lot more attention should be getting paid to this aspect of a candidate.

Conflict resolution begins with gathering feedback

Conflict at the workplace is inescapable. Although it is true that not all conflicts are necessarily bad; they are harmful if they are not resolved.
