5. Agree on the best way to resolve the conflict
6.Acknowledge the agreed solution and determine the responsibilities each party has in the resolution
Clarifying involves getting to the heart of the conflict. The goal of this step is to get both sides to agree on what the disagreement is.
In this step of the process, both sides agree on the desired outcome of the conflict.
Both sides work together to discuss ways that they can meet the goal they agreed upon in step 2.
In this step of the process, the two parties acknowledge what has brought them into the conflict.
Both parties come to a conclusion on the best resolution.
Both sides own their responsibility in the resolution of the conflict and express aloud what they have agreed to.
Compromise is a means of settling in which each side makes concession. This is sometimes the only choice such as when a decision must be immediately or when two parties in conflict have equal power (LOSE/LOSE)
