Since you must present yourself as a mediator between the opponents, you do not enter the game. That is to say, you will be the one who will listen to the argument and then propose the right solutions. By listening carefully to the antagonists, you can better identify the source of the problem. And you can find a consensus that will settle the opponents.
2. Find out the causes of the conflict and prevent devastating pressures
The conflict is indeed a natural component of human life due to diversity in opinions, way of life, behavior, etc. But if you want to act for peace, adopt the right techniques to manage it. First of all, you need to determine the sources of the conflict with the persons who are involved. Indeed, there is no need to make the conflict even worse by taking a part or rushing towards the one who is supposedly right or wrong.
You have to present yourself as a referee on a playground. That is to say, stay unbiased. Then, you should realize actions that will show the parties the disadvantages linked to their conflict and their engagement. Knowing the problem thoroughly is already getting halfway to resolving it.
3. Talk smartly
To calm down the conflict, you must implement a dialogue between the antagonists. The dialogue must be organized in three steps: an individual meeting, a mutual meeting and at the end, a final dialogue. The individual meeting is about listening carefully to the versions of each part.
The mutual meeting serves to confront the antagonists under the presence of a mediator, the main objective being to come to a final agreement. That stage will lead to an agreement that will put an end to the conflict.
4. Make a commitment on the impact
Another way to fix conflict is to set up an engagement that will encourage opponents to recognize their responsibility in the conflict and the impacts that this could have. In this way, the conflict can happen in the form of a negotiation without any violence. In addition, the altercation must remain under surveillance.
5. Avoid mistakes
There should never be the slightest mistake in the case of a conflict management to make it go smoothly. For that, we must avoid taking sides. That is to say, to give the right to one or to tell the other he is wrong. In addition, there is no need to do actions that can amplify the tension. So you have to be serious and delicate, smart and efficient.
