Hi Shravani

This question identifies whether the interviewee possesses managerial qualities of objectivity and facilitation. Pick a specific incident. Concentrate on your problem solving technique and not the dispute you settled. If not answered properly this question can expose emotional sensitivities. This is your opportunity to show proof of being able to achieve results in the face of difficulty.

Hi Sharvani,You need to state the situation clearly, when what why? Then you can talk about the "How" you helped resolve it. You should use terms like Sensitivity, empathy and apology as part of your response. In case you cannot remember any such occasion, then you should mention the same. But, still say that I would take the following steps to resolve the dispute. This shows clarity of thought and putting a process in place and your preparedness. All the best!
