“From Tension Can Come Great Harmony”


Conflict is all about emotions, when a person is off balance emotionally, it is difficult to engage constructively with the other person.

You can lose sight of your objectives and become focused on how the other person has wronged you, (often repeatedly in the your mind). Retaliatory responses kick in and a cycle of emotion starts, you may no longer be interested in solving the problem as much as punishing the other person.

Knowing how to identify what conflict is the first step in dealing with the situation in a different way and having the tools to regulate your emotions when situations arise can improve your responses to conflict.
