Resolving conflict successfully can solve many of the problems that it has brought to the surface, as well as getting benefits that you might not at first expect which are as follows: • Increased understanding: The discussion needed to resolve conflict expands people's awareness of the situation, giving them an insight into how they can achieve their own goals without undermining those of other people/children in the group. • Increased group cohesion: When conflict is resolved effectively, team members including children can develop stronger mutual respect, and a renewed faith in their ability to work together.

Having an open and frank conversation with your team members will allow you to tune into what drives and motivates each individual, their goals, and aspirations.

The best listeners we know are often our role models or professional counselors. The worst listeners we know are often related to us, probably because we save our worst behaviors for the people closest to us.
Abstract (Thesis) Even though team conflict will always arise due to differences in work habits, and personality types, communication issues, and can result in disharmony and cause a distraction for the team, team conflict should be seen as a positive thing. It should used as a forum for open discussion and can start the flow of creative thinking. Differences in personality types in team members can help in organizing tasks assignments, which can help avoid conflict. Team management strategies can organize your team to help them work thru any problems more effectively. No matter how diverse the team members may be or how difficult the task or project may be, conflict no longer has to be the downfall of your team’s success.

That is why I enjoyed completing the LSI Survey, because it is designed to help you learn how to deal more constructively with conflict situations in your life. It gave me a chance to look at conflict not as something to avoid, but as something to embrace. Personal Style According to the LSI results my personal conflict style falls under the constructive orientation. I would have to say that this orientation fits the way that I have always approached conflicts, because I never look at it from a win/lose prospective.

To make sure productive day every day, I need to set priorities, goals, and deadlines; delegate tasks appropriately; and use time to focus on solutions. Self-Management section taught me that the leaders have such abilities as managing their emotions, holding themselves personally accountable for what they say and do.
