Brief 1 week 3 structure of conflict

Main Idea: Planning and theories of power are central to the structure and engagement of conflict. 

To engage conflict well, regardless of the context, is only possible if we’re aware of how conflict works. This doesn’t mean that there is a simple solution to every situation. However, it does mean that we’re willing to do what Maya Angelou said and “think twice, speak once.” 

Pausing to plan creates space for processing conflict. And preparation—gaining understanding about the nature of power in conflict, goal setting, and overall structures of engagement—make the possibility of constructive conflict possible. This is the next step in developing our ability to engage conflict well.

THE CHALLENGE: How do you approach conflict?

THE AUDIENCE: Your supervisor / boss. *Prepare your brief with this audience in mind.
