    Resolving Workplace Conflicts / Mediation can help you make the best of a bad work environment - Richard Berman, San Francisco Chronicle
    In many modern workplaces, conflict is as common as PDAs and paper clips. If you're in one of these challenging work environments, telling your boss off and hitting the road might feel good but in today's uncertain economy there's no guarantee that there will be another job waiting for you. As a result, employees in a down market often feel the need to 'grin and bear it' if problems arise at the office because they don't feel comfortable asking for help in defusing a tense situation. 'The irony is that people who bring up issues may actually be more protected during layoffs,' says Kathryn Schear, a San Francisco-based dispute resolution specialist who mediated more than 500 cases in her five years with the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC). 'But it's important to go about it the right way and talk to the right people.'
