Conflict Resolution Skills for Executives

Innovation is driven by conflict. When conflict is handled correctly it strengthens relationships. When handled incorrectly, conflict destroys organizational climate. Leaders who embrace their audiences’ self-images, address conflict early, and resolve their current conflicts in a manner that sets positive expectations for future conflicts promote healthier organizations.

All too often leaders focus on avoiding or eliminating conflict instead of leveraging it to arrive at a better future. This short-term focus directs leaders to force compliance, and denies leaders the opportunity to inspire commitment. The Disciplined Listening Conflict Resolution Method is designed to provide leaders with a long-term focused, audience centric, goal oriented approach that values commitment over compliance.

Leaders who develop situational awareness, emotional intelligence and quiet confidence welcome conflict as an opportunity to foster a culture of collaboration. They understand that every escalated interaction provides them with an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to their team and build trust within the organization.

InQuasive’s core communication philosophy is “Focus on the issue, not the person – Focus on the resolution not the consequences”. Every investigative interview has the potential to devolve into conflict. We are proud to say 100% of our interviews have concluded with a handshake. We understand that the strategies executives employ, their ability to control their emotions and their dedication to helping their audiences protect their self-images will impact their ability to cultivate calm from conflict.

Michael Reddington, CFI created the Disciplined Listening Conflict Resolution Method to provide executives, business development professionals and HR professionals with the advantages they need to connect with their audiences, strengthen relationships, uncover new alternatives, and influence agreements.
