For this week’s Discussion, think about a situation you experienced where there was conflict. Then, evaluate each of the suggested models as a potential framework to resolve the conflict you experienced. An overview of each of the eight models in Chapter Two will give you a synopsis each of the models and how they might apply to your conflict situation. To effectively select a model, you will need to be familiar with the details of each, so you also will need to read the chapters pertaining to the models you think are most applicable to your situation and complete additional research using the resources in the Walden University Library. Finally, select the model you think would have been most useful in producing a positive outcome to the situation you identified.
1) A description of the conflict you experienced and what resulted, keeping organizations and individual identities confidential and making sure you provide your analysis of the situation that led to the conflict.
2) Your reasoning in selecting a particular model from your readings that you think would have produced a better outcome.
3) A description of how you would have applied the model to the situation, with specific details and the outcomes you anticipate would have resulted had the model been applied.
4) Your assessment of the importance of carefully analyzing situations where there is potential for conflict and selecting the most appropriate model for resolving them. What take-aways do you think are most important as you plan for your future as a manager?
