- Wrong Financial Calculations & Money Related Issues
When it comes to traveling together as a group, money is one of the main causes of problems. People might have a great time together, but they would easily clash when it comes to money. This is especially if there are specific people tasked to deal with the finances.
Sometimes as a leader, you might miscalculate some items. If this happens, it could brew a bad conflict between the group members.
The truth is, money is not easy to come by. People work hard every day to earn it. And if they see a chance where someone could be taking advantage of them, they would react back.
So, be wise when it comes to money issues. When there is a problem, call all members and sit down with them. Be honest and transparent with them. People don’t even care much about the money. What they need and care about is accountability. And this is the only way you can solve this conflict. Be accountable.

Watch out for these two things. If you are the leader, be wise on how you handle them. They could build or break the entire group if not careful.…
