One of the things you will want to do if you are going to resolve conflict is to review the way you think about compromise. If you’re a them vs. us, win – lose, black – white, kind of person then often you think that any kind of compromise is a loss. Compromise is, you give a little and I give a little, and we make a quid pro quo kind of deal. But, if you think that anything less than what you want is a loss, then you are going to associate weakness and loss with compromise. My recommendation is to remember if you are going to resolve conflict, compromise is one of the essential tools to do it. When you learn to compromise, you are probably going to resolve the conflict and move on.
