Another example of dealing with group conflict would be altercation and by influence. Challenging, questioning, and speaking your mind when a conflict surfaces is what an influential and confrontational member would do. By discussing the topic would be a way to eliminate difference of opinion among group members and persuade them to proceed differently. This approach may bring to an end or carry on the conflict. Solving conflict is a talent and communication awareness is fundamental to putting an end to any group communication conflict.
William Shakespeare's Hamlet and August Wilson's Fences are built upon father-son relationships. Both plays show a connection between father and son that overrides any other power, whether fought for through murder or through something as simple as a cold-hearted attitude. While Claudius and Troy share selfish, lustful roles and refuse to realize the potential of a loved one because that would mean accepting their own misfortune, both characters will strive to maintain their ultimate goal of a life filled with power and deceit. Besides the obvious socioeconomic status differences between the two families in each play, there is a similar story told behind each but they are shown through different perspectives and to contrasting extents. In Hamlet, Claudius' character is developed into a shrewd and conniving one.
Conflict as action, is made up of the measures we take to express ourselves to have our needs met resulting in the likeliness of interfering with another person having their needs met; an act of power. This type of behavior can be destructive, conciliatory, constructive, or friendly and no matter how the behavior is expressed, the intention is to express conflict in order to get what one
It is clear that at the beginning of this excellent comedy Oliver and Orlando are not the best of friends, in spite of their sibling relationship. Note the way that in Act I scene 1 they fight, and Orlando, having his brother trapped in some kind of wrestling hold, tells us that his brother has committed the following crimes against him: My father charged you in his will to give me good education. You have trained me like a peasant, obscuring and hiding from me all gentleman-like qualities. The spirit of my father grows strong in me, and I will no longer endure it! Clearly the hatred that they feel for one another is expressed through their behaviour and the words they use for each other, such as when Oliver insultingly calls his brother a "boy" and he tells the Duke that he hates Orlando just as much as he does, knowing that this will be bad for his brother.
I will then go on to look at minimising conflict using a recognised technique and how the adverse effects can be minimised. Causes and Explanation Because there are a variety of personalities within the work place it is inevitable that there will be conflict at some point and this could be for any number of reasons; * Different Personal Values; at some point you may be asked to complete a task that conflicts with your ethical standards. When work conflicts with personal values conflict can arise very quickly and this can be overcome by trying not to ask people to do tasks that you know will cause them distress due to their beliefs/values. * Unpredictable Policies: When rules or policies change within the workplace and those changes are not communicated clearly, confusion and conflict can occur. It is essential to inform people of changes and why these changes are happening as when you are aware of why something is being altered you are much more likely to accept it.
Compromising approach is best to work under the time pressure and can also achieve consensus to complex issues. Therefore I would recommend Lauren deal the problem with compromising approach. Part 2- Prevent Conflict: Despite setting ground rules, there are some problems arise in the team. In order to prevent the problems from occurring in the first place, I would use the following steps I have read from “The SECRETS of Facilitation”. These steps are especially design to
However, there are cases when an individual's character is not only identified at conflict but rather redefined or changed by it. As in conflict, compromises great or small are made in order to accommodate present circumstances. Choices made are reflective of one's priorities and inlaid beliefs. Assessing an individual's true character often requires other people's input. It can therefore become a relative matter, rather than subjective, when people are involved.
What can be taken out of a theory is what can be used to define and shape what we theorize today. To discount Durkheim’s theory of suicide would be to disregard a point of view that may help in other ways. The following is the explanation of Durkheim’s theory, the opposing views, Durkheim’s personal writings, and agreeable views to his theory of suicide. The Explanation of Durkheim's Theory Durkheim’s theory of suicide was best described as the relationship between an individual and the society they lived in. The main points of his theory of why people committed suicide are as follows: the degree of an individual’s role in society, social isolation, and being normal to which society would define.
For Ions of time people have dealt with conflicts. When conflicts arise, conflict can make solutions difficult to find to a particular problem; whether conflict is in a work setting, to a team or group project. When many different kinds of cultures and people are involved, conflict is almost inevitable. Conflict in a team or a group, does not necessarily mean any certain person is terrible or mean in personal nature. Conflict in a group it just simply validates human nature and makes us aware that all people are not the same.
However, unlike Hamlet’s first two major soliloquies, this one seems to be governed by reason and not frenzied emotion. The topic of Hamlets soliloquy is his consideration of committing suicide. It is obvious that Hamlet is over thinking and wavering between the two extremes, life and death. “Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer The sling and arrows of outrageous fortune Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them”(III,I,56-60). In this quote, Hamlet ponders whether he should live and suffer the hardships of his life or die in order to end suffering.
