Workplaces are filled with all types of challenging people, not just external clients and tenants.  We need to have difficult conversations to resolve problematic situations effectively and maintain positive relationships.  Conflict discussions can be healthy, but only if approached in a positive, objective and respectful way.  By giving effective feedback and addressing situations, you will have more pleasant encounters with colleagues and clients, increased confidence in your abilities and better outcomes for all parties.
