When you face conflict. . .
- do you avoid the problem by not talking about it? or admit there is a problem and begin to discuss it?
- do you try to escape and not talk about the situation? or rationally try to figure out the cause of the conflict?
- do you get frustrated unless you get your way? or work out a solution that’s best for everyone?
- do you dominate the peace process by directing what should be done? or allow others to share their views and help devise a resolution?
