CONFLICT DOCTOR IS IN
You know your conflict questions
In this category I answer the questions that clients and others have asked about what they can do, could have done, or might do differently or better in the future.
Conflict Managers speak of ‘hurting truces’, where the parties are so damaged that continuing the fight causes more pain than resolving their conflict would. We speak of ‘ripeness’ to resolve conflict because the cost of conflict is greater than the benefit of resolution.
Wouldn’t it be nice to manage conflict with less pain in the future? You can learn the lessons that conflict teaches you.
Ask me questions about how to do conflict better
Whether to prevent a conflict, manage your current conflict, or be prepared for the next conflict that will happen. I’ve worked for decades to help people develop their conflict competence.
While conflict teaches valuable lessons, not every life lesson is learned only through an awful experience.
