Negotiate Conflict Resolution Using Our Win-Win Assessment

Read our newsletter article about how our win-win assessment revealed why members of a corporate team continually experienced conflict

Personal friendships as well as marriages are full of joys but also full of strains. Take the Win/Win Assessment and learn how to work through any challenge so you both end up as winners every time.

A win-win orientation is one of the
Six Partnering Attributes and is key to effective communication and successful relationships. Win-win strategies are essential in partnering solutions, as they ensure you negotiate conflict resolution collaboratively, resulting in solutions that benefit all parties involved.

Conflict Resolution Style. Everyone has an inherent conflict resolution style to which they usually revert when under stress. These styles are based on a flight-or-fight response, so the outcome will be that someone loses while another wins. A key to business and personal relationship success is learning negotiating skills.

The Impact of Win-Win
Solutions in the Workplace

Executives and managers will always need to improve their ability to handle conflict because conflict will be ever-present in the work environment. It's important for executives to remember that the methodology applied to the various types of conflict that occur must be as unique as the people involved in the issue.

Win-win negotation skills are crucial in the twenty-first-century business world, which is so dependent on partnerships, alliances, and outsourcing relationships.

In the workplace, the best managers and other leaders know that they cannot be successful by taking an authoritarian approach and trying to coerce performance from employees. This type of approach will only set the stage for future failure by creating a cycle of conflict and mistrust that becomes increasingly harmful in business. Eventually, management and employees both lose. In contrast, win-win negotiating results in stronger relationships.

Win-win negotiations achieve the following outcomes in the workplace:
* Employees who feel that problems are solved in ways that don't create losers have higher job satisfaction; this translates into increased retention rates and reduced costs for recruiting and training new talent, as well as more effective teamwork results

* Opens up the discussion for diversity of thought and opinion, allowing information into the decision-making process and therefore producing higher-quality decisions arising out of the conflict

The Impact of Win-Win
Solutions in Partnerships

In any partnership, win-win solutions are:

* Essential in successful contract negotiations

* Essential for keeping the parties' interests
   aligned over time

* Effective in eliminating lost business
   opportunities because of win-lose stances
