5 Ways to Resolve Conflict

1. Identify the problem.
2. Speak with a purpose. Think before you speak.
What is the point you are trying to make?
3. State your viewpoint clearly and concisely.
4. Keep your tone calm. Two (or more) persons speaking loudly in order to be “heard” are rarely listened to.
5. Be gracious no matter what the outcome. It is alright to agree to disagree. Conflicts are not contests, the goal is not to win, it is to resolve a problem.

Find out who you are writing to, a bit of history on the company, and let them know why they should be interested in meeting you.

This is my first official post! I’m excited to finally take up blogging as a way to get information out to others and to connect with more people than I would through my private practice.  I’ve had such a variety of experience in the field of mental health over the years, I’m hoping to bring you information on goal-setting & achievement, addiction recovery, performance strategies and personal success strategies.  Also look for general tips on navigating life through my “5 Ways” series of posts.
