Conflict is a fact of life. It happens between individuals, within work teams, among trade negotiators, within communities and organizations and among nations. It can be about scarce resources, identity-group polarization, power, injustice or just plain misunderstanding. We can try to avoid it, compete as adversaries, or use cutting edge collaborative practices to resolve the conflict and learn and grow from the experience.
