Handling confrontation isn’t something most people dream about doing in their business, but the longer you’re an owner, the more likely it is that you’ll strongly disagree with a vendor, employee, client, or competitor.
Avoiding the issue seldom works as a strategy. Second-guessing someone else’s motives also rarely works. And taking the “my way or the highway” approach typically only makes things worse.
Dealing successfully with disagreements can make your business run smoother and your life more peaceful and enjoyable. So, ideally, you want to resolve the situation in as healthy, productive, and effective manner as possible.
