Overview

The use of conflict resolution skills and strategies in the workplace will help to maintain a healthy work environment. These critical skills are required daily and are vital to the success of a company. Leaders are responsible for creating a work environment that enables people to thrive. If disagreements and differences of opinion escalate to interpersonal conflict, you must intervene immediately with conflict resolution.
