What do you do when there is conflict on one of your teams?

Project support officers have to know how to handle people, especially when a conflict arises. If a problem comes up between team members, or even vendors or stakeholders, it can interrupt the flow of the project. The interviewer wants to hear that you know how to handle this sort of situation. If possible, give examples; if not, discuss how you would quickly work to resolve any conflicts.
