A very handy tool for approaching any conflict situation that needs to be resolved is E.A.R.
Ask the people involved to:
Express – What you want and what are you doing to get it.
Address – Why it is working or not working.
Resolve – What ways there are to solve the situation.
**For the last decade I’ve been involved with leadership development of tomorrow’s leaders. Using my expertise, I am training the youth leaders in conflict resolution. This blog is adapted from my training materials.
