Using Performance Appraisals for Conflict Prevention
USU Dairy Extension Newsletter
I recently returned from a 2-day training meeting in California on Conflict Mediation in dairy situations. I learned some very valuable techniques and methods to help to resolve conflicts. It became very clear that the individual parties have to accept responsibility in resolving their problems, and that a mediator can help them. One of the strategies I liked most was the use of performance appraisals to prevent conflicts before they happen. This technique is especially good for farm families and middle and upper management situations where I tend to see a lot of conflict.
