The results of unhealthy and poorly managed conflict create a negative impact for individuals and groups. Those people who master essential conflict resolution skills reduce the occurrence of negative conflict, leading to healthier, happier relationships and work environments. Many conflicts would not spiral out of control if people used conflict resolution techniques that are easy to learn and utilize.
