Groups that have different attitudes, learning and work styles, and ethical perspectives are different types of diversity. Diversity is valuable to team members who have to deal with conflicts. Diversity can bring abundant possible blessings the team. When the team has diversity it can make better decisions, have better problem-solving possibilities, more originality, and more vision. When the team has more diversity in the group, the end results will be more appealing to the entire group. When you do not have diversity in the group and a conflict comes up, others will tend to conform to whatever the dominant group members’ decision might be. This will stifle any type of creativity or growth the group could have had. The way to have better conflict resolution in a diverse team environment is to have good communication. Having good communication skills include self-monitoring, sympathy for others, and deliberate decision making. When you self-monitor, you are staying aware of how your actions affect others in the group. It is also important to make sure you are willing to change your behavior when you see how your behavior affects the group. When you have sympathy for others in your group you are going beyond what others say and take into consideration for their feelings and needs. When you have deliberate decision making, you are strategically making the best decisions for the group through good communication. When the team is doing all of this in a diverse group you should make superior conflict resolution decisions and be a dynamic group.
