Stories help us retain ideas and try new ones on for size. We use stories to understand and make meaning, constructing our world with their help. And stories are a powerful way to remember conflict resolution lessons and ideas.
In 14 years of blogging, I’ve told a story or two here at Lenski.com. As part of my summer project to organize past conflict resolution articles into frequently requested micro-topics, I’ve organized the conflict resolution stories, too.
Stories like these, which have been reader favorites for years:
- Freeing yourself from the keeper hole of conflict
- The body in the suitcase and the conflict stories we tell
- The art of dealing with insults
- Be the bedouin: Spend more time understanding before solving
- The crucial difference between yelling at and yelling toward
- The secret to de-escalating loud, angry conflict
- I’ve cried a river: Rooster conflict teaches resolution lesson
