[SOLVED] Conflicting Situations at the Workplace
Write a 8 pages paper on conflicting situations at work place. The entry is about an incident when my boss Teresa assigned me and my partner a combined assignment. . We had done joint work before but it had always been predetermined in terms of division. . I always had a portion to do and my partner Bruno had his portion. . This time the task was different. . The instructions were general and we had to do each part of the task together. . The first two days went fine. . On the third day, Bruno came up with an idea related to the task that I did not agree with and he almost imposed it on me. . He presented his proposed plan of action and started working on it directly. . In fact, he had done some homework on it even before discussing it with me.  .He was so confident and imposing about it that I didnt really know how to behave or how to have in my say. . The result was that I remained silent and kept following his plans. .The project ended up fine, the short term consequences were also satisfactory, it appeared a smooth joint work but the long term effects it had on me were negative. . I never feel comfortable in joint work now and I still regret not doing it my way for I believe it would have given a much better result if we had done it differently. In light of this conflict situation and my submissive reaction to it, I think that my approach is flighty which I have learnt through experience is not healthy in the long run. . After finishing this module, I believe that I should have been more assertive and tried to flow instead of flying off. . Using I-statements, I could have asserted my ideas, leading to the incorporation of my ideas into his. . I could have said: Bruno, I respect your approach to carry out the task but I get upset when Im left out of the planning and Id appreciate if we discuss the plan in detail before implementing it.  .Instead of saying: Bruno, tell me what to do next. While reviewing literature related to conflict management, I came across a relevant paper by Trelsan (1993). . It explains that flight responses to the conflict must be avoided at all costs since such responses yield either I Lose/ You win or I Lose/ You Lose results. . .
