Many Cups of Tea in Glasgow

There is a famous book titled “Three Cups of Tea” and it tells the story of an American man and his many journeys to Pakistan to build schools for children.  The tea reference is to the custom of having tea while communicating with others.  This occurred during lively discussions, friendly and informal talks, and during negotiations for him through the book.

'Zero Tolerance' of bullies? Hungary's schools offer an alternative response to conflict management

As school boards, state and local governments draft legislation to respond to increased reports of bullying, the term “zero tolerance” often comes up. When New Jersey recently implemented its sweeping “Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights,” the “zero tolerance” formula appeared in several news reports.

Beyond Fight or Flight - Making Different Choices to How We Approach Conflict

You've heard it before...instinctively, when anyone feels threatened our brain kicks into gear with a fight or flight response.

There are other choices we can make when we feel threatened in a confrontation. Choices and different behavioral… Continue
