2. Listen well
3. Give the other person the benefit of the doubt
4. Acknowledge the other person’s feelings
5. Be strong without being mean
6. Try to see a conflict as a problem to be solved
7. Set your sights on a “win-win” solution
8. If you don’t seem to be getting anywhere in solving a conflict, ask for help
9. Remember that conflict, handled well, can lead to personal growth and better relationships
10. The true heroes and heroes of today’s world are not the Rambos
