Lesley & Rick Bradstreet: "Three Conflict Resolution Styles...Why Can’t We All Just Get Along"
Friday, April 26, 2019
Every conflict includes several levels of differences between parties. The level receiving the most attention is the “who gets what” part of the conflict: Who has to pay? How much? Who gets custody of the children and pets?
Another level of every conflict is how participants prefer to solve the conflict: stick to the facts or include personal history? Trust logic or trust emotions? Be diplomatic or “tell it like it is”?
This presentation will explore 3 distinct styles of solving conflicts. Participants will learn to identify their own preferred style; mediation parties’styles; and how to bridge the differences during mediation.
