Conflict Management Course
Over this past eight weeks we have all learned abundance about the different types of conflict and the various types of resolutions for those said conflicts. We did not just learn about conflict but we also looked into ourselves and our peers to see how exactly conflict intertwines with our own lives and how we deal with it on a daily basis. This paper is being written to show exactly what styles we use towards other people and how that looks to them and how it makes them see us. You will also read about some of my own personal examples of how I have ran into conflict and how I try and use my skills to the best of my ability to change the way it affects others and myself directly. I will include some of the information that was assessed by some peers and also the assessments completed by myself to show what I think of myself and what others see me as. Conflict is a problem for many either it be at school or at work but with the knowledge gained by the class, book, and assessments it makes it easier to find yourself changing to what is right.
Along with this paper I did an assessment on myself and gave two others a peer assessment. When filling it out on myself I knew exactly what kind of person that I was and I scored a 5.36 on the Solution-Orientation part which was higher than the No confrontation and Control styles. When adding up the scores from the two peer assessments, I found that not only did I see myself as Solution-Orientation but both did as well with scores that were 5.54 and 6. That tells me that I see myself the same as my peers do. I do not shy away from conflicts but try and fix them. I am the type of person that doesn’t like to see conflict and can do whatever it takes to try and fix problems that affect people that are close to me at home and at work. I see conflict as the reason of a lot of hatred between people and I have never liked to
