From the Paper:

"Additionally, David must be aware of the fact that a conflict doesn't affect participants only (Heathfield, 2007). Hence, he must address to the entire team and ask them to integrate Kelly who despite her inexperience can successfully contribute to the improvement of the practice's activities. On the other hand, he must encourage Kelly to confide in him and ask his permission for any change she would like to implement. In other words, he must clearly (but politely) state who makes the final decisions within the practice. Moreover, he should encourage Kelly to take part in celebrations as she is part of the team, too, and can write important pages of its history someday."
