Conflicts is inevitable in life, no one can escape it, not even the most powerful and richest person on earth. We are all going through one or more conflicts in our lives, either at our place or work or in our family lives. However, not all conflicts are detrimental to our well-being, there are some conflicts that make us brighter, better, and they motivate us to be stronger.
However, not all conflict is bad! Conflict is always difficult, but it leads to growth and change, which is good. Honestly, no one likes pain, but pain wakes us up and tells us when to react. If we had our hands on a stove, and we couldn't feel the pain to know to remove it, then we be in big trouble! If there were no painful stimulus, we’ll get burned.
Negotiation is part of life, we negotiate with ourselves, we do it with our boss, with our family members, and most importantly with the people we work with and the society at large. And the most important aspect in negotiating is communication. Communication is critical in our lives, without good communication, relationship can go sour. Good communication must be agreeable, acceptable by the parties involved. Good communication should not be seen as a one way street, it takes two or more to communicate. Good communication must be effective and allow to flow easily.
It’s been said that conflict is like a tea bag: You have no idea how strong it can be until it gets into hot water.
