Integrating Conflict Resolution and System Strategies to Optimize Individual and Organizational Performance
"This is my strategic approach toward resolution. I believe that addressing any conflict situation as an isolated event does not achieve enduring solutions. Employing systems strategies, transformative mediation, coaching, relationship dynamic techniques and skill building processes is how to best achieve actual resolution, not just a situation specific solution."
Conflict resolution is a set of techniques for resolving conflicts with the assistance of a third party. Mediation is simply one of the techniques used to assist the disputants to resolve their own conflict. The process is voluntary and the disputing parties have control over the final agreement(s).
Individuals and organizations need the right skills and tools to work effectively together. Increasing morale, productivity and promoting a positive work culture requires ongoing efforts to learn and practice resolution strategies.
Organizational Development (OD) practitioners know how a system operates and understands the interrelationship between the elements of the system. In today's world of rapidly changing and complex environments, OD is used to help plan, implement, evaluate and improve processes in order to achieve outcomes that are positive and sustainable.
