The Importance of Following Up After a Resolution

Some conflicts cannot be solved in one session. And even if an agreement is made, it may take time to implement the solution. You may need to follow up, communicate about progress, and make necessary adjustments. 

Sometimes new challenges arise and you must continually be engaged in a cooperative dialogue throughout the entire process. Do not neglect this step. Not following up is how conflicts go unresolved, resentments build, and the conflict starts up again.  

If fortunately, the conflict is resolved with the first attempt, your follow up will be perceived as a goodwill gesture and an expression of how you value the other person and their opinion.  
You might even set a standard for yourself that no conflict resolution is complete until you’ve followed up. You will become known as a person of deep caring and integrity.
