Small businesses are relationship businesses. When its relationships with suppliers, customers, partners and employees work well, the business can thrive. When they don’t work, the business will suffer. Managing those relationships is one of the most important tasks of the owners of a small business, and it can be one of the most satisfying ones. But conflicts can arise in even the best relationships, and some conflicts are hard to resolve by even the most skillful small business owner. Unresolved conflicts with employees and partners bring frustration and can hurt customer relations; unresolved conflicts with suppliers and customers can threaten the profitability of a business. Mediation can be a low-risk, inexpensive way to work through small business conflicts.
