When dealing with conflict in any group of people the first thing to remember is to keep a cool head and a positive attitude, with this you will be able to end the conflict by finding a common ground no matter the diversity of the group. By putting things into perspective for each individual it can make things go a lot smoother and lead to conflict resolution. Diversity can not only lead to conflict resolution by bringing different views to the group but can also lead to new and creative ideas that can push a team forward in whatever the current task is. The absolute best way to resolve conflict is to prevent it all together, if there is no conflict then you have successfully resolved the conflict before it happens. This can be accomplished by assigning parts of a project to each person based on their work styles, if you do this efficiently each person will have no problem completing the assigned task quickly and still retain the quality that is desired, they may even enjoy the work given. This will boost morale in your team and reduce overall conflict in the future. In the case that you are the team leader and you are tasked with teaching or training your team to preform or complete a new task, implementing all of the learning styles into your session will allow for better understanding, a more successful outcome and limit the conflict among the team about how the task was meant to be completed. A good leader can also resolve conflicts when they are small and unvoiced, this can make the conflict resolution process much faster and keep the team functioning progressively. In conclusion, embracing diversity’s creative potential, keeping a positive attitude even during times of struggle, implementing and understanding of learning and work styles, using ethical perspectives to personalize your explanation and communicating all of these to your team will resolve conflict and minimize future conflict within the team.
