8 Ways to Resolve Conflicts Peacefully

  • Remember that all human beings have the same needs, such as acceptance, support and independence.
  • Check your intentions to see if you are as interested in getting their needs met as you are your own.
  • Notice if you are making a request or a demand.
  • Instead o saying what you DON”T want someone to do, say what you DO want.
  • Instead of saying what you want someone to BE, say what action you’d like the person to take.
  • Before agreeing or disagreeing, tune in to what the other person is feeling and needing.
  • Instead of saying no, say what need prevents you from saying yes.
  • When upset, think about which of your needs are not being met, and how to meet them, rather than focus on what’s wrong with other people.
