Conflict is inevitable. It happens between individuals, sports teams, companies and other groups. When people are afraid of engaging in conflict, they choose to avoid it, which can allow it to fester and become worse. Instead of allowing a conflict to turn into a negative situation, you can look at conflict as a way to improve a situation.
Conflict coaching is a form of alternative dispute resolution that’s gaining popularity for diffusing and resolving conflicts before situations can spiral out of control. It can also be used after the dust settles but a lot of tension still remains between the people involved.
It can be used as a preventative or proactive measure when people or companies are dealing with significant conflict and they want to prevent tensions from reaching an unhealthy level. Conflict coaching can also be valuable before, after, or in place of mediation, to address a specific dispute when only one party is willing to participate. It can also be used to help individuals, executives, managers, and other leaders develop more effective communication and conflict resolution skills to use when conflicts arise.
Conflict coaching is a one-on-one technique, where a trained coach assists people to effectively manage specific disputes or even to prevent them. It also helps clients gain confidence and strengthen their ability to effectively engage in conflict constructively.
Conflict doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Having the necessary tools to recognizifor and managing conflict can help people embrace conflict and turn it into a positive experience for everyone involved.
