Third Party Conflict Resolution 2 Third Party Conflict Resolution Mediation and arbitration are two negotiation strategies commonly used in the business world as well as in our personal lives. Determining the most successful strategy when entering a conflict or business deal will contribute to the success or the failure of the negotiation or resolution. Robert Taichert, from CPA Journal, states, “A mediator’s job is to separate the people and their emotions from the problem, to get the parties to address the problem, and to find an accommodation of the conflicting interests that all the parties can accept. Sometimes the problem is solved and relationships are restored and improved” (2006, para 4). According to the research done by Team D, mediation is the preferred strategy in determining the preeminent third party conflict resolution with the use of an arbitrator as the contingency strategy. Conflict Conflict is necessary to bring about change, in CONFLICT TRANSFORMATION; Intervention also takes the form of providing mediating services that enable the adversaries to construct new options, thus helping to transform their conflict (Kriesberg, 2006). Another dynamic to conflict resolution is communication which is where the mediator opens the doors for both sides to hear one another. Conflict is a part of everyday life, personal and professional, how the conflict is approached and the strategy used to resolve the conflict will determine the end result. Intervention Strategies In any conflict the primary goal is to reach an agreement that will satisfy all parties. Reaching that agreement can be challenging at best. To reach a resolution both sides of the conflict need to be heard and all parties need to discuss the issues driving the dispute.
Third Party Conflict Resolution 3 Arbitration, conciliation, and mediation are terms that represent ways of resolving capital/labor disputes through a third party (Arbitration, 2004). While reviewing an organizational scenario there are different reasons to having the third party get involved in the negotiations. Taking the organizational scenario into account there may be more appropriate ways to utilize the third party. Often times a third party is needed in order to orchestrate a resolution.
