WASHINGTON (AP) — Senators launched an all-night vote session laying groundwork on President Joe Biden’s coronavirus relief package, as the White House is increasingly focused on selling the plan directly to voters. Biden’s administration has done 60-plus interviews with national TV and radio shows. There have been spots on local TV news and briefings last week with more than 50 groups. One of the main goals is to stop people from getting bogged down in the tangle of partisan deal-making and convince them that every penny of the $1.9 trillion package is needed. Senators are voting on a budget resolution to set the contours of the final bill. One provision seeks to limit which Americans will qualify for $1,400 direct payments.

Usually when two personalities clash, both parties are partially to blame. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a few tips for getting past the conflict and moving forward.Keep it on the down-low: Obviously when there’s some conflict, you need to find a resolution. The best thing you can do in the process, is to not let it cause division among your fellow employees. When lines are drawn, and allies and enemies are made, it’ll make it ten times harder to resolve the situation. Don’t make it tougher than it has to be.Take five: A back in forth argument usually won’t get you anywhere. You’ll get emotional and will ignore logic and reason. Take a minute to get your thoughts organized and turn those reactions into responses. A clear head always helps when trying to resolve a conflict.Two rights make an argument: You’ve probably heard that “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.” While this phrase is weird and puzzling to small children, it’s also right on the money. There’s often more than one way to be successful at a task. Remember when you find yourself in a conflict, that people see things differently and neither way is necessarily wrong.
