Posted on: January 16, 2009

j03854191. Try to put yourself into the shoes of the other person and understand where he or she is coming from. Imagine what is driving them to help create the conflict.

2. Try to understand what you hope to gain by resolving the conflict. What would be the perfect outcome in your eyes? Can you imagine getting the conflict resolved in the way that would make you happy? How can you work towards this?

3. What are you willing to give up? Do you feel that it is okay to compromise to resolve a conflict or are you worried about saving face?

4. Can you think of a way that you can allow the person with whom you are involved in a conflict to save face?

5. What good is losing your temper do? How is the other person likely to react? Do you think that this will resolve the conflict or just allow you to blow off steam? Can you imagine regretting saying anything that may hurt the other person’s feelings?

6. Think of someone you admire. How would they resolve the conflict?

7. If you run away from the conflict or pretend that it doesn’t exist, what do you think the outcome will be? Do you imagine that the conflict will be resolved or do you think that it will get worse?
