Conflict is a fact of life, especially at work. Our challenge is deciding how best to deal with conflict. You have to deal with it, even if your choice is to avoid it. De-escalation is an approach in conflict resolution and involves negotiating skills, empathy, listening, compassion, and treating all parties with dignity and respect. Successful de-escalation involves considering many factors including the personalities of the people in conflict and the nature of the conflict. You must consider whether the conflict is serious enough to merit your attention or if it's something to delegate. You must also consider the potential impact of the conflict on your workplace. Does the conflict have the potential to disrupt operations or affect consumers? Learn techniques to change your reaction to someone’s behavior to change the situation successfully.
