CONFLICT RESOLUTION & RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT...

Appropriate Resolutions for life’s relationships.

Text Box: A RELATIONSHIP IS LIKE A CAR;
 It requires regular MAINTENANCE……if you want it to continue...

     Like that metaphorical car which has never been tuned or maintained,

a relationship which 'knocks', clunks, or  'grinds' will probably break down, sooner rather than later.

      If problems, speed-bumps, and other catalysts to potential break-downs are ignored, your relationship will no doubt soon begin spewing ‘black smoke’.

 

The choice is yours; pay now or pay later!

     Have those difficult conversations WHEN potentially divisive differences come up, or it will cost you more later… emotionally, physically, and without doubt, financially.

Text Box: 'THE 4 PILLARS OF 'CONFLICT' & RELATIONSHIP

Replace Conflict SUPPORTS with Relationship FOUNDATIONS.

IF you care about the relationship,

IF you decide to manage differences effectively,

IF you are committed to a mutually satisfying outcome...… You will need to…

 

1) understand what people 'see', (including yourself) 2) acknowledge what people feel, (including yourself) AND 3) respond to what people feel/think/believe they need, (including yourself)...  AND … ... all must be validated and respected through a mutually satisfying communication process.

Remediate your un-satisfying relationships by changing Conflict SUPPORTS  to Relationship FOUNDATIONS.  … BUT only if you care about the relationship.

relationships also need care...
