1. Be willing to compromise

Resolving conflict will require being able to meet at a happy medium that works for all parties involved. This might mean having to make adjustments to your expectations.

2. Take responsibility for your actions

It’s okay to not always be right. Be willing to admit that you were wrong and take the appropriate actions to move forward in your relationship.

3. Attack the problem, not the person

In conflict, it can be easy to use personal attacks on the people involved. Instead, try and focus on the conflict at hand and how it can be best resolved.

4. Use your active listening skills

Active listening requires empathy and really trying to understand others and their feelings/experiences. Being able to understands other point of view will be helpful in resolving your conflict.

5. Focus on the present rather than the past

When conflicts and arguments arise, is not the time to bring up all the arguments that have come up in the past. Focus on the conflict at hand and try your best to work it out.
