Session VI: Conflict Resolution
While many people avoid dealing with angry individuals due to the unpleasant feelings that arise, leaders should instead see this as an opportunity to seek out resolution, correct the problem and ensure that the employee or client is happy with the outcome. Unhappy employees and customers are vocal and spread their negativity to all who will listen. For every one person who tells you they are unhappy, nine others don’t care enough to call. They’ll just give us their notice. When you exceed a client’s or employee’s expectations, they tend to be vocal too, sharing their delight and recommending you to other potential clients or potential employees.
