Conflict Resolution 101: What to Do When Your Ideas Don’t Mesh with Another’s
When your ideas don’t mesh with another’s, a conflict may arise. This is especially true if you and the other person are related in a unique way, i.e. you are collaborating on a project together, are co-workers, are married, etc. Here are a few conflict resolution tips that can get you through the toughest of disagreements:
If you are a person who reacts – and by “reacts,” we mean gets nasty, distant, or upset – when there is a disagreement, it’s time to change your ways. Remember that each person’s opinion is unique, and reacting will only fuel the fires.
Think Before You Speak
If only we did this every time that we opened our mouths. Thinking before we speak is an essential part of ensuring that what we say comes out how we mean it. Ask yourself, “Is what I’m about to say going to cause hurt feelings? Distrust? Is it really worth it?”
Be Willing to Compromise
