In workplaces, school settings, and homes, conflict resolution techniques
have been helping people to solve conflicts, or arguments, in better ways. In
the workplace, co-workers may encourage teamwork and discussion, and in

how people communicate with words, they look at the words people choose
to speak or write to others. For body language, they look at how people
“say” things with their body`s gestures, voice tone, and eye contact. From
doing this, they understand how people communicate best. Not being able
to communicate clearly, or miscommunication, is one of the main reasons
conflicts happen. So mediators often learn how to prevent miscommunication
with good communication techniques. They do this by learning how to speak
clearly and how to give feedback. They also learn how to listen carefully to
understand another person`s message. Once they`ve learned the best ways to
communicate, they share them with their co-workers or classmates.
Conflict resolution techniques are not just used in offices and classrooms. They
are used to solve arguments between parents and children and husbands and
wives. They are also used for conflicts between companies, organizations, and
countries. If conflict resolution techniques are used well, they can help change
the outcome of many arguments and conflicts.
