This is critical to remember …
There really is no such thing as a shared reality.
Our perception of the world is based on our very own set of experiences and history and just like our fingerprints, NO TWO ARE ALIKE.
Each of us has a story that has been created over our lifetime. And even if we grew up in the same family or worked with the same people, when we experience a common life event, we may think that we have a shared…Continue

Many of you have participated in the Pasta Wars simulation, and I've shared it, in the past, on ADRHub. Some of you have been kind enough to write (on the Hub, or privately) of your own work with the the simulation. So, I turn to you as I seek to make the simulation accessible by a wider group of educators and trainers.
I know many people have used this Prisoners Dilemma simulation-game in different…Continue

How many of you have dealt with a cranky child who’s in the midst of a tantrum? If you have a child over the age of 2, I imagine all of you have experienced a meltdown or two (or three, or four…).
And, you’ve probably experienced the frustration and anxiety some of these tantrums can produce in you, too. There are few things more irritating that trying to soothe a child who, frankly, is really making you angry at the moment. In those times, many parents will yell back. Some will walk…Continue

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights," this is the first statement of Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Since this declaration's adoption in 1948, political rights have been foregrounded. Now the time has come for humankind to give dignity sustainable attention. Human rights are embedded in dignity, but dignity has a larger humanizing…Continue

You’ve heard the saying “Don’t Shoot the Messenger” before. It means that you shouldn’t blame the bearer of bad news for the news that he/she is delivering.
So … what does that have to do with conflict?
I am going to draw the parallel to anger.
It may look or act like…Continue

I recently learned that the Association of Conflict Resolution has a Healthcare section. I know Creighton does a lot with their graduate NDR program and health care. We are working on setting up some free webinars and I'm just wondering how I can share the information. Any suggestions?

When I talk to clients about grief, they often think I’m referring to the physical death of a loved one. But, I remind them that grief is much larger than that – yes, it usually refers to the mourning process over the physical death of someone. But, grief is also the process by which we mourn the loss of anything – even friendship.
For those who feel they must end a friendship due to too much ongoing conflict, the figurative “death” of the relationship can be traumatizing. So,…Continue

I’ve just shared a new article, Negotiation is Changing, on SSRN. If you negotiate regularly, or teach or research negotiation, you may enjoy taking a look at it.
Over the past couple of decades, we have changed in so many ways. Think about the significant shifts in how you spend your time, interact with others, conduct your business, and engage with friends. Most of the changes…Continue
I started thinking about this blog topic because I read an article about a famous American who thought he was open to negotiation and compromise. Was he? I’m not sure. But apparently, he thought so.
Stephen Covey said that “We judge ourselves by our intentions …” however, others don’t know anything about our intentions. They can’t read our minds. All they can observe are our…Continue

When I work with families, the subject of parenting is definitely a hot topic! I’m often asked questions like, “Should both parents work outside the home?” “What’s better – quality time or more time in general?” “Should Dad be more involved in his childrens’ lives”
At the crux of all these questions, of course is this: “How can I be the best parent for my child(ren)?”
Of course, everyone wants a surefire solution to this age-old questions, but I only offer one answer:…Continue

Gastrodiplomacy is on the rise, and I, for one, want in on it.
People tend to be more positively inclined towards a country after eating its food. As this issue of Public Diplomacy suggests, this has encouraged many countries to intentionally spread their country’s cuisine as part of the cultural outreach practiced by their embassies and consulates.…Continue
I chose this topic for today’s post because it’s the first day of the Nevada Legislature. And I am about to be immersed in a pretty adversarial place for the next 120 days.
Many years ago, I heard the phrase “don’t let perfect stand in the way of good” and I will admit … I wasn’t quite sure what advice a legislator was trying to give a group of us that legislative session.
However, over the years, I have learned.
The legislative process can…Continue
