How should communication and conflict resolution occur in the workplace?

  • Knowing more about how to communicate clearly and with sensitivity can help you to avoid problems before they start.
  • An assertive person communicates freely, but in a respectful, non-threatening manner. Assertiveness is a balancing act, requiring thoughtfulness and social awareness.
  • Your relationships with other people are characterized by boundaries that define the degree of closeness appropriate to each relationship.
  • Relationship maintenance gets a whole lot easier when you learn how to communicate what it is you want from people in clear and unambiguous language.
  • Being committed to a relationship basically boils down to taking that relationship seriously: showing reciprocity towards the relationship, respecting its boundaries and doing your best to communicate and listen clearly and well.
  • Effectively navigating work relationships requires that we first know our goals in the situation. It's important to know not only what specific results you want to achieve, but also how you want the other person to feel about you after the interaction and how you want to feel about yourself.
