I’m the type of person who HATES confrontation. When you get bullied in a queue (who was here first?), when you have a bone to pick with someone or even when one of your relos just say bat-shit-crazy-hurtful things that shock you – and you have NO COMEBACK until one day later – that’s the stuff I'm working on…
However, one thing I do have up my sleeve is how I manage CONFLICT (the cousin of confrontation). It works a treat. I’ve been using this technique for years, and it ALWAYS helps when I am in the thick/thin of conflict (i.e. big or small conflict, doesn’t matter).
See the number one visualisation tool (please don't mind the pig-tailed unicorn who causes a tiny distraction):
The beauty of this strategy: It works across the human interaction board. In marriage, with kids, family, friends, strangers, colleagues, business associates. Essentially anyone you have contact with, there’s bound to be disagreement. And when there’s a difference of values… well, enter: CONFLICT.
I hope you get something out of the video. And, please, I’d love to hear your thoughts on how you manage conflict – and if this may complement to your existing ways? If you find it helpful… please share it!
