Conflict resolution involves these key skills: collaboration, communication, listening, problem-solving, decision-making, and negotiation. Collaboration involves working with others to solve a problem or achieve a goal. Working with others isn't always easy because people have different personalities, interests, communication styles, and values. Strong collaboration skills can help the people involved overcome obstacles to successfully resolve conflicts. Successful collaboration involves the ability to listen to others, manage stress, and to have the ability to apologize.

When people are in a conflict, they may lash out at those who are perceived to be threatening their well-being. Depersonalizing provides a shield against their hurtful behavior. It involves making something like a person's insulting remark impersonal. It is akin to the phrase "don't take it personally."
