Last week I wrote a very short manifesto about the conflict resolution ideas I hold close in my work and conflict resolution premises I reject.
My conflict resolution mini-manifesto was prompted by a new client asking, “Will you teach me how to deal with difficult people?” I said no, I’ll do something better.
The conversation left me pondering, yet again, the ways we “less-than” others with whom we’re in conflict or are helping with their conflict. And the ways we “less-than” conflict itself, as though it is a pathology. Let’s stop. Let’s do something better.
