How to Resolve Conflict

Do you find yourself in a conflict…at work, at home or wherever?
Before you make a move to resolve the conflict, FIRST take time to clearly identify your desired outcome / intention. 
For instance, if your desire is to vent your displeasure the outcome will be significantly different than if your intention is to repair the relationship.
NOW take a few minutes to sit quietly with eyes closed and visualize this outcome fulfilled.  For Silva students, this is a great opportunity to use either the Mirror of the Mind or the Holo-Viewing technique.

Keeping your cool – staying calm – is very very important even though it may be difficult. From that place of calm you can

1. listen, really listen — This is the basis for true communiction.

2. find a place of understanding, even compassion — use your empathy to ‘find’ this.

3. find a common ground

4. begin a discussion rather than an argument

Make sure you stop other things and put your full attention on your discussion. Keep good eye contact – without staring.

Be patient and hear the other person out without waiting for the time to say what you want to say. After they finish speaking, take a breath…think about what they’ve just said…then say what you need to as it relates to both the situation and what they’ve just said.
