10 Steps for Conflict Resolution

Together Forever, Aid Association for Lutherans, Appleton, WI, 1997, p. 83

Set a time and place for discussion. Define the problem or issue of disagreement. Talk about how each of you contributes to the problem. List past attempts to resolve the issue that were unsuccessful. Brainstorm new ways to resolve the conflict. List all possible solutions. Discuss and evaluate these possible solutions. Agree on one solution to try. Agree on how each individual will work toward this solution. Set up another meeting to discuss your progress. Reward each other as you each contribute toward the solution.
