Handle Conflicts Like a Leader!

Leadership Instincts

Different people handle conflicts in different manner. A true leader will do that with elegance. Practice these tips while handling a conflict and see how people respect you!

*Be Honest:

A conflict is never an excuse to lie, to exaggerate, to build up half truths, to cook up stories etc. Stick to truth. 

*No name-calling: Nothing can worsen a conflict than calling names. Words, once out from mouth, can't be taken back.


*No physical harm:

Keep safe distance. Evan a slight push or touch can worsen it.

*No throwing:

Do not throw things at people, floor or wall. There will be impulse to break something, but you should control it. If the negative energy is too high, take a walk or go for jogging.


*No threats:

Do not warn about breaking up the relationship out of frustration. Do not take any decisions at all.

*Lessen the "You" factor:

Do not start the blame game. You did this.. You did that.. are the worst things to say!


*Take time- out:

Take a time -out. Call for some space. Calm down yourself and analyse the problem from a third person perspective.

*Communicate:

Nobody is a mind reader. Communicate your needs and feelings. Not your judgments or assessments. 


*Speak carefully:

Speak slow with enough pauses. Breath adequately. Speaking more slowly and resisting the temptation to speed up your communication will make it easier to stay in touch with your feelings and minimize the likelihood of blurting out in anger, words that you might later regret.

*End up on a positive note:

End your conversation on a positive note. 


Though these do not guarantee that the conflict will be solved, it will ensure that it is not worsened.
