How to solve a conflict?

How to solve a conflict?

Some time ago I had a small disagreement with one of my clients. It was about the interpretation of a clause in the property management contract, a specific situation we both hadn’t foreseen.

So, I asked myself: ‘how can I handle this situation?’ It became clear that neither of us wanted to be fighting. We also didn’t want to damage the relationship. So, it was important to find a solution for this disagreement we had.

Why is it so important that you can deal effectively with a conflict? There are many reasons of course. One of the main reasons is of course that we would like to improve our relationships. We also spend a lot of time dealing with conflicts. Plus having a conflict is also uncomfortable and if you could find a more professional way to deal with this, this is always better.

This applies to all relationships, including the relationships between owner and tenant or the one between seller and buyer of properties.

In her Harvard Business Review book, Dealing with conflict, Amy Gallo provides a systematic and professional review of how to approach disagreements in a work situation. I think most of her concepts are universal and can be applied in every conflict situation.

What changed in Spanish rental law?

Changes for rental contracts as of 6 March 2019

What changed in Spanish rental law?

In 2013 the Spanish Rental Law (Ley de Arrendamientos Urbanos, LAU) became more flexible. Rental contracts could be terminated after three years, as this was five years before. The main reason for this was to stimulate the rental market and to moderate the increases in rent.

That being said, the flexibilisation of the rental law didn’t bring the expected results. Rent has increased the last few years and the expected increase in the offer of apartments has not been significantly changed. Reason enough for the Spanish Government to change the law again. By Royal Decree of 1 March 2019, 7/2019, the LAU changed again.

What are the main changes? In this article you will find some questions and answers.

The Values Barometer @ Quilantro

In many companies rules are dominant. Following the rules is the credo. As a result, companies have huge, complex policy manuals. However, rules don't say anything about core values. They are often absent. Instead of tightening the rules, the best approach is to be extremely clear about what the company's values are and how to translate these into actual behaviour. 'Integrity has no need of rules', as said Albert Camus.
