3 effective ways of conflict resolution

post2

It is very natural to have conflicts when you have people of diverse backgrounds working in the company. These disputes must be dealt with constructively to promote a healthy work environment. Here are three effective ways you can resolve conflicts in the workplace.

Don’t think that people are against you

1

Don’t take anything personally. During a conflict, the emotions run high and people try to defend themselves. This feels like an attack. Instead of throwing back words at the person, if you just take a step back and consider that person’s perspective then the situation will be better.

Listen for values and not the interests

2

If our regular conversations, we talk about our interests. But certain values motivate our interest. You should uncover those values to resolve conflicts. For example, interest would be ‘ I wish I could take long vacation’; the value, in this case, is ‘I like variety and change’ or ‘I value relaxation.’ If we change our perspective of looking at things, conflicts will be automatically resolved.

Practice safe communication

3

If the other party threatens you, then it will prevent authentic communication. You can make a rule that you all will come to an agreement before starting your work. This will create a safe place for your work. Clear rules should be laid for confidentiality, using respectful language, and other issues that may give rise to conflicts.

All these are constructive ways of dealing with conflicts at the workplace. So, try to practice these methods of conflict resolution and make your workplace a healthy one.

Coaching can tell you where you want to go and how to get there. It is something that is future oriented. Some signs tell you that coaching is necessary to move forward with life.

You are in dilemma whether to leave your current job or not

This is a very crucial stage of life. On one side you have a new opportunity and on the other, you have to let go of your previous career. You should weigh the pros and cons of each. Still, people find it hard to decide which way to go. You are thinking both logically and emotionally. Coaching will help you to clear off your mind and think about it individually; first logically and then emotionally instead of blending the two feelings. This way you will be able to make a wise decision.

You are blocked on a creative project

There is something called the ‘writer’s block’ that happens to professional writers. This is a condition when the writer’s mind just goes blind, and he or she is unable to write anything. The Same thing may happen when you are working on a creative project. In such situation, coaching will help you to clear up that block in your mind.

Your family members and friends are concerned about you

If you hear complaints about your behavior or attitude from your close ones, then you should realize that they are saying it for a reason. Instead of defending yourself, you should take their advice and visit a life coach.

Life is not a smooth journey. There will be difficulties in life. People should take hold of them and seek help to show them some positive direction. A life coach does exactly that.
