Conflict Management Email

Conflict is a part of human relationships and colleagues often have conflicts now and then. But it is how we manage those conflicts that matter. Because unresolved conflict can affect the way we work and the overall productivity of the company. Here are some templates for you to follow when resolving conflict.

Suggested Sample: Resolution of Conflict: [Employee Name(s)]

Dear Mike,

Thank you for sending me feedback on how my constant delay in the project report and presentation has affected the overall work. I agree with you on that note that sometimes, the supervisors just want to see a model and be assured work is underway even if we are yet to take any significant step in the execution of the project. I appreciate your concern and realise how it may have made you feel whenever the supervisors turn to you asking questions about the presentation.

Those occasions where we had nothing to present were a result of the fact that I found it challenging to put up something in skeletal form. I believe it would look bad for our departments if we had shallow presentations consistently in those meetings. We may be unknowingly making an impression of our team as having no clue and incompetent. This I believe we should avoid.

We have sent reports to the right quarters documenting all the challenges we are facing presently and those we envisage. These are the barriers we are facing presently. We hope that this will be attended to soon. We will have a more solid presentation during the next meeting.

Thank you.
Best wishes,

Dear Beatrice,

First of all, thank you for your email. It gave insight into areas we need to work on as a department. Your displeasure is quite understandable, also.

I realise that there may have been certain things that do not meet up to your expectations. While this is so, permit me to say we are working on it. However, presently our mode of operation is according to the guidelines given by the overall head of the team. I believe we have duly followed these guidelines and did not miss a single detail today. This may be why some matters are not understood for now. I will also like to assure you that we will carry you along on issues related to your department.

Thank you so much for your understanding.
