Avoiding conflicts at work can be achieved when you can focus on how employees treat each other.  You want them to recognize the need to work together for the overall goals of the business.

Help your employees to:

  • Practice Active Listening skills
  • Focus on the future (not past behavior or decisions)
  • Focus on details and deadlines, not personalities
  • Be patient and friendly
  • Be clear in their communications and use repetition to avoid confusion and misunderstanding
  • Emphasize positive consequences and don’t focus on blame
  • Acknowledge agreement with even minor details
