    A great article! I’ve had a few hits and misses over the years with trying to resolve conflict. Some people just don’t want to know. It takes courage to fess up to your mistakes or listen to other people’s feedback. One thing I try and do is just to stick to the point and not get dragged into other issues or issues from the past.

    “The benchmark of success is not always resolution but knowing that you conducted yourself with integrity.” This part resonates with me: that I’ve actually found the courage to discuss something and not let it drift or be swept under the carpet.

      Thanks Sue! It sounds like you practice healthy conflict! Sticking to the point and taking a break if you’re too upset helps. I think shifting the goal to mutual understanding makes resolution more obtainable. Glad you enjoyed it!
