From your responses to the quiz, it appears that you are effectively handling conflict!
How To Continue To Handle Conflict Effectively
- Pick The Right Time! Make sure your arguments are not during a time when one of you is tired, ill, or distracted.
- Communicate Effectively! Remember to use "I" statements to give ownership and direction to your thoughts or feelings. Reflect on what you partner said to continue to avoid misunderstandings.
- Keep It Focused! Continue to stick with one issue at a time to ensure you will both find a solution.
- Show Appreciation! After you resolved the problem, remember to thank your partner for contributing to the process. Always end on a positive note!
