None of us likes conflict. Many of us do everything we can to avoid it. But conflict is a part of life. And at some point, you are likely to experience conflict both on and off the court.
However, conflict in one part of your life can affect your performance in other parts. Left unresolved, personal conflict can seriously affect your performance on the field. The good news is that using proper techniques to address and resolve conflict can be a real opportunity to build teamwork and trust.
The goal is to keep conflict to a minimum so you can focus on performing at your best level. Conflict resolution skills can be divided in two parts – preventing conflict and resolving conflict. Building effective skills in these areas can have a positive impact in all aspects of your life.
