Turning Conflict Into Collaboration
Self-awareness and speech are the two characteristics that make us human—and supposedly, superior to other species. Ironically, these same traits often cause human beings to destroy each other. Most fights—from family feuds to full-blown wars—are set in motion by individuals whose human gifts of self-awareness and speech had morphed, respectively, into power-hungry ego and shameless manipulation.
“Conflict is a growth industry,” wrote Roger Fisher in “Beyond Machiavelli,” a book about international strife and peace negotiations. While Professor Fisher’s observation seems especially prophetic in light of current events, more and more people around the world are working hard to reverse that trend.
PeaceTalk™ is my small contribution to that work.
This practical system is based upon the premise that:
1) Conflict is part of life and while it cannot be avoided, there are safe ways to confront and defuse it.
2) With the appropriate communication skills, conflicts can be turned into learning opportunities and antagonists into collaborators.
