Research shows that positive thoughts can help you to build skills and make a real value in your life, while negative thoughts narrow your mind and you only focus on negative emotions. (Clear, How Positive Thinking Builds Your Skills, Boosts Your Health, and Improves Your Work, Paragraph 3 and Paragraph 13) But what would be the best response to conflict, a negative attitude or a positive attitude? We can look at people such as Louise Ogawa who was in Japanese internment camps in the United States also during World War II who both had a positive response to conflict. Anne Frank who was in the concentration camps in Germany during World War II is another great example of a positive response to conflict. After reading about these people and

I feel at times I accommodate myself at the approval of others. Like for example, I may act differently around certain people then I would around people I feel comfortable around.

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” – Winston Churchill. The two selections, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl and Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler’s Shadow, are both great examples of people who are going through conflict but still display courage. The best way people can respond to conflict is by having courage and confidence.
Behavioral scientists Kenneth Thomas and Ralph Kilmann, who developed the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument, have identified five styles to responding to conflict—competition, collaboration, compromise,
This activity will help you determine your natural style for dealing with conflict. It is useful to assess your predominant conflict management style(s) because we all tend to prefer one or two of the styles and at times may apply them inappropriately.
I completed Thomas-Kilmann questionnaire in class of Managerial Communication as a part of activity. This questionnaire helped me to recognize my conflict management style which is “Collaborating” as I chose collaborating approach to answer most of the questions that is 9 out of 30. This means I want to solve the conflict or problem rather than ignoring it. I chose competing method only for 3 question. I think, I need to start take stand for the things I believe correct because otherwise it will become really difficult for me to survive in work place where everyone have to compete
This passage reminds of the time when I was at the airport waving goodbye to my cousin, just before she went through the security checkpoint. Just like what Liesel did in the text, I was also holding on to my cousin's hand until I got blocked off by one of the security guards, who were at the entrance of the checkpoint. However I was only five at that time, so I didn’t care about what the security guard said and kept on following my cousin. As a result, the guard was angered and I was asked to leave the checkpoint and my cousin alone. As I left, my eyes were teary because she was the only girl cousin that I had and that she cares about me. As a result, I can still remember this experience clearly in my
Seeking Answers Amid a Toxic Debate is an article written by Michael Eisenstein, a writer, editor, and photographer. In the article, Eisenstein writes of Colony Collapse Disorder also known as CCD. Colony Collapse Disorder happens when most of the worker or adult bees in a colony die and leave behind a queen, lots of food and few bees to care for the hive. While this doesn't seem entirely awful, there is lots of food and baby bees, it has the potential to be disastrous. The loss of these adult bees causes numerous issues, the hive will eventually run out of food, the few “nurse” bees can not show the young bees how to gather food, and not to mention the surrounding agricultural crops will suffer.

1. Concept: Conflict strategies are defined by two separate means: whether something is competitive/ nasty in nature or cooperative/ nice in nature and whether it is directly confronted or avoided indirectly. This creates four categories that that accurately describes how the conflict was handled as either direct fighting, indirect fighting, negotiation, or no-confrontation. The specific topic that will be discussed is Indirect Fighting in which the situation is avoided but in a competitive manner which conveys displeasure with the situation.
Each person has a characteristic personality. Such a style reflects our unique wants, needs, and values. In conflicts, there are specific global patterns that can be identified that are reflective of how individuals deal with such challenges. These global patterns consist of five approaches to conflict management: Competing, Collaborating, Compromising, Avoiding, and Accommodating.
This is a research about conflict which should be considered and resolute during a project. Although, six experts are from different background, there are many sufficient methods to deal with different kind of issues during the working. The great mode has used in the research is Thomas-Kilmann’s conflict mode instrument. (Thomas, K. W., & Kilmann, R. H. ,1974). There are five effective approaches are discussed. Each approaches have its positive and negative effects. Also, there are many problems that each expert should consider about themselves which can devote their effort to help finish the project successfully. Achieving mastery through a comprehensive study of all of these methods can finally bring a huge success to the whole project.
