Conflict happens in the workplace.
A productive workplace relies upon teamwork. Your workforce must be able to work closely together, often in high-pressure situations, in a cooperative and productive manner.
Team building activities are a great way to build cohesiveness and effectiveness in the team, but what do you do when conflict arises? How do you handle conflict between coworkers? Conflict can destroy a highly effective team and cost your company thousands of dollars.
Workplace mediation is a service you can provide to your employees to help them resolve conflicts that inevitably arise in the workplace.
How can workplace mediation help you?
Facilitative mediation is a proven process that allows all parties to a dispute the opportunity to share their concerns in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
One of the most common causes of interpersonal conflict is a lack of communication and empathy. People often know what they are upset about, but have difficulty effectively communicating that to others. In the case of conflicts between people, one of the biggest barriers to resolving conflicts is that each person does not truly understand what the other person is really upset about.
When two people get entrenched in an I’m-right-and-you’re-wrong mindset, the only possible resolution is grudging compromise. Facilitative mediation finds a better way.
Facilitative mediation does not require either side to sacrifice their own feelings and autonomy in order to resolve the dispute. The mediator will work with both participants to help them understand each other and them get back to having a constructive and productive work relationship.
