Examples of Elephant in the Room

What is an elephant in the room? There are examples from both the world of work and the private sector. The third area for concealed conflicts and imbalances is the internal conflict.

A conflict between two or more people in a company or organization

Examples of Elephant in the Room

The elephant in the room can also stand inside a person. This is the case when someone does not want to admit an internal conflict or does not want to look at an obviously existing problem.

  • Dealing with health
  • Loyalty conflicts, e.g. B. between work and private life
  • A repressed inner conflict – such as giving up a lifelong dream – can manifest itself in a variety of ways, including psychosomatic forms
