In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Mike Phillips talks about the importance of conflict resolution.

Communication is a major component of conflict resolution. Phillips stresses that it's not about how well you think you are communicating, it's about how well people take your message.

Just make sure you're being direct -- it will ease the conflict resolution process.
