Title: Fact Sheet: Managing Sources of Conflict in Collaborative Settings

Author: * Greer, W.J.

Subject: Conflict resolution, Collaboration

Abstract: Anyone who has been involved in a collaborative process knows that a conflict within the group typically involves multiple par-ticipants, can be complex, and can intensify dramatically, if left unresolved. Everyone involved has their own thoughts and feel-ings about what is happening as well as perceptions about the thoughts and feelings of others. As conflict increases, reasonable people may demonstrate irrational or unwarranted behaviors. Natural reactions to these behaviors may be to strike back, give in, or break off. Objectivity--the faculty needed most to navigate conflict effectively--is sacrificed.
