Conflicts can occur anywhere and anytime. Even possible if you are working together with your team mate for doing an important presentation. You might have many different opinion and ideas, which is a good problem to enrich the content. But, if you take it personally and too long, it will damage the quality of relationship and block the content making itself. So how to stay productive while dealing with it?
Agree with the Mutual Goal
You and your coworkers need to define what kind of mutual goal that clearly need to be achieved. Ask both of you why this co-working activity needs to be happened in the first place? Do you both chase the same direction? For instance because of you guys belong to same department so it's better to formulate everything in the same table for one presentation. Hence, every time you got into conflict, remember your mutual goal and try to remind your co-workers as well. If the conflict is not getting you closer to the goal, then move on. But if the conflict is taking you to get the goal, then resolve it with win-win and logical statement that you both agree with.
Give People Time to Explain
Conflict happened because of misunderstanding and misperception. Don't get too subjective, give time for conflicting partner to explain what they are heading to. This will set you apart from being too subjective and vice versa for your partner. Of course, all parties should be treated the same way, you also will get time to explain clearly what your statement coming from. We are not in favor to battle and seek who is win or lose, you just need to assess clearly by the mutual goal that agreed in the first place.
Find Neutral Middle Man
If the conflict is hard to be resolved because of each strong opinion, then it is good to go find some middle man that can act neutral toward you both. Look for someone who is respected by both of you (even better if he/she is senior to you) and trusted to be a wise man who can judge objectively. Try to settle everything down by explaining clearly each party's ideas and the core conflict. Listen to his/her advise and take a solution out of it.
