D. Communication and Conflict Resolution

  1. Opinions vary, stakes are high and emotions heat up. That’s a crucial conversation.
  2. Someone has missed a commitment or breached a contract and now there has to be a face-to-face accountability discussion. That’s a crucial confrontation.
  3. Strong willed people often revert to power ploys early in a conflict, and that usually creates new problems and more damage to deal with. Tough conversations fall apart in recognizable ways and there are strategies and tactics to unilaterally guide them back on track.
  4. Excuses weaken us and the team we represent. Whether we are giving the excuses or accepting them. Accountability, and the methods used to spread it throughout the organization is the cure
  5. Conflict is common in construction and leaders are those who effectively guide the team toward constructive ends. leader identify and remove obstacles and enable others to move forward. A boss tends to bottleneck everything through himself and often creates additional workload for others.
