Not all conflicts are created equal. Some conflicts can represent something as simple as a child who wants a candy bar at the check-out lane and a parent who says, “no candy”; to a stand-off between two countries arguing over land rights. What every conflict does need, however, is effective negotiation skills in order to achieve a mutually satisfactory outcome. Since no conflict is ever the same, there can be no one-size-fits-all negotiation and mediation tactic. In order to become an effective conflict negotiator, you need to understand the strengths, weaknesses, and uses of different methods and styles of negotiation and mediation. Your readings this week describe various methods of negotiation in conflict management. As you will notice, the readings describe conflict and negotiation tactics applied to different settings.
