AcknowledgeTheConflict? would be the first, and even that alone is a good step towards resolution. Sometimes though there is no actual conflict, the participants being in Wiki:HeatedAgreement

Much valuable discussion starts once participants AcknowledgeTheConflict? and then ValidateTheConflict?, avoiding the distraction of winning at all costs, or giving in at first resistance.
See also ConflictResolution, SourcesOfConflict
But don't NameTheFactions.
