Communication and Conflict

Conflict occurs in all types of communication, whether the communication is among family, friends, or business partnerships. Therefore, it is important to understand conflict and the causes that create the conflict. Understanding how to effectively communicate with those with whom we are experiencing conflict can reduce the conflict and lead to positive outcomes.
