|Abstract: ||Despite its high relevance in everyday practice only little is understood about interpersonal conflicts between coaches in athletes. Nevertheless, conflict is a part of every relationship and thus should be carefully considered in order to deliver high quality coaching. Therefore, the current study aimed at understanding how conflict is experienced by top level athletes and coaches. More specifically the researchers were interested in which behaviors are shown, emotions experienced and thoughts through-lived by the participants. A total of eleven high level coaches and athletes, respectively, participated in semi-structured interviews investigating the onset and nature of interpersonal conflict. All interviews were transcribed verbatim and a cross-case content analyses was conducted. Three main categories 1) Conflict Antecedents, 2) Conflict Onset, and 3) Conflict Nature were represented within the data. The results emphasize the variety of individuals’ perceptions understandings of interpersonal conflict and offer a thorough account of the dynamic conflict process.|
