It's always best to give each other time to breath and relax. I just take a time off alone or with some friends and cool things down. Then, if both parties are ready to talk, we get that chance immediately. I don't want to prolong it as much as I can but I give room to the other party. I'm more of a deal with it and move on guy. It isn't gonna help if emotions are unmanaged and uncontrolled. As emotions rise, so does the tension almost all the time. Once everything's ready, just discuss what the reason for the misunderstanding is. Where and when did is start? The goal ultimately is to come to a conclusion where both parties agree. And most of all, try to be fair with each other as much as possible. Once dealt with, just move on a long. It's already in the past.

Talking seriously and treating each other with utmost respect would definitely help. When you are already talking, try to avoid interrupting each other so as not to annoy the other party. Also, speak your mind and don't hesitate to open up. Be yourself.

Good Communication - For Better Understanding
Most conflicts can be resolved when both parties involved will talk diplomatically. May it be conflicts with a co-worker, a friend, a lover or a spouse. But we also have to consider the timing. We can't ask them to sit down and talk if they are fuming mad. We have to give them some time to cool off and then approach them to talk about the situation and how it can be ironed out. There is no better way than a good communication

talking is always a good way, but it is also important for both parties to take a moment to stop and calm down so that they are both in more of a position to have a civil conversation. It also needs to be a 2 way conversation, and sometimes it is important to discuss how certain things made the person feel

For a conflict to exist something must to have been not understood. I would find what was not understood and I would clean that up!
