As organizations grow, there are more opportunities for people to have disagreements. Friction and tension will inevitably arise when different points of view collide, which in turn can lead to conflict at work. The best way to handle this situation is through mediation. A neutral third party helps the individuals involved reach an agreement or compromise beneficial to both parties with minimal disruptions within the organization. This approach allows employees to feel like their voice was heard while maintaining open lines of communication throughout the process, enabling them to increase employee satisfaction and create high-performing teams by building trust.
