We all communicate up to a point where our habits set in. Until someone makes an insensitive remark. Until someone asks us for our advice and then argues against it. Until someone ignores our ideas in a meeting. Until we’re tongue-tied with a group of complainers. Until we’re defensive about how we are handling the current project. Until we fail to persuade out team or customer to take action. Until a friend tells us we need to learn to negotiate rather than dictate. Until someone won’t accept “no” for an answer.
When we find ourselves in any of these situations, we need to change the way we’re communicating – to increase our skills with a specific technique that jump-starts us past habit and on to progress. We need to stop, hoping we “get through” and ensure that we do.
The workshop on communication is about these techniques.

- Criticizing without crippling
- Giving advice or feedback someone can really use

Managers know that conflict over issues is natural and even necessary. Management teams that challenge one another’s thinking develop a more complete understanding of their choices, create a richer range of options, and make better decisions.
But the challenge – familiar to anyone who has ever been part of a management team – is to keep constructive conflict over issues from degenerating into interpersonal conflict.
From our research on the interplay of conflicts, politics, and speed in the decision-making process of management teams, we have distilled a set of eleven tactics used by high-performing teams:
- How management teams can have a good fight
- Arguing without destroying the ability to work together
- Active / passive listening
- The ‘No’ lose method
- Working with more, rather than less, information
- Developing multiple alternatives to enrich debate
- Injecting humor into the work place
- Focusing on the facts
- Linking conflict with speed and performance
- Resolving issues without forcing a consensus
- The ‘win win’ situation
These tactics work because they keep conflict focused on issues rather than competitive relations among team members and create a sense of fairness in the decision-making process.
