Steps to resolve conflicts.

There are basic steps to resolve conflicts. All leaders are bound to encounter difficulties between two people or groups.  This will happen when the team is in the ‘storming’ stage of team development.  In this stage the conflict may not be completely obvious.  It’s quite true that some will act out their issues.  Others can become extra quiet and withdrawn.

The simple steps to resolve any conflict are:

·     Be aware of yourself.

·     Be aware of others.

·     Listen.

·     Use your EAR.  [Express, Address, Resolve.]
