Conflict Management and Negotiation

The term conflict refers to perceived incompatibilities resulting typically from some form of interference or opposition. Conflict management, then, is the employment of strategies to correct these perceived differences in a positive manner. For many decades, managers had been taught to view conflict as a negative force. However, conflict may actually be either functional or dysfunctional. Whereas dysfunctional conflict is destructive and leads to decreased productivity, functional conflict may actually encourage greater work effort and help task performance. Borisoff and Victor (1998) point out, "We have come to recognize ...
is broadly defined as interventions designed and based on psychological theory, research, and practice delivered via information and communication technology ( Kraft, Drozd & Olsen, 2009 ). e-psychology interventions have most commonly been applied in areas of health; examples are depression ( Andersson, Bergström, Holländare, Carlbring, Kaldo, & Ekselius, 2005 ), adherence to medication ( Ross, Moore, Earnest, Wittevrongel & Lin, 2004 ), and smoking cessation ( Brendryen, Drozd & Kraft, 2008 ). Future applications of e-psychology interventions are likely to become increasingly more common in information, organization, and ...
Does “Why?” Even Matter? » The Goal Focused Way
Conflict management and negotiation theory has some interesting parallels to postmodern ideas in philosophy and the arts. At the heart of modernism lies the idea that modern humanity has a duty to investigate and understand not only what happens, but how and why events happen. For negotiation theorists the modern era can likely be said to have begun with Sigmund Freud’s ideas about the human psyche as expressed in his psychoanalysis writing. For Freud one can extend the line of modernity to Abraham Maslow and his motivational theories. But there was a seismic shift towards the end of the twentieth century that ... market research, surveys and trends
“I do” is only the beginning: Seven secrets to a lasting marriage
With wedding season and the stress of nuptials underway, it’s easy for couples to think the hard part is over after the walk down the aisle. But relationship experts who’ve studied marriages over the decades say the work has just begun, especially for today’s bride and groom. Modern marriages require more communication skills, conflict management and negotiation, says Howard Markman, a University of Denver professor. Challenges have grown beyond both parents working outside the home and managing busy children’s schedule. Results from a longitudinal study begun in 1996 predicting divorce showed anxieties ... market research, surveys and trends


Unilateral Separation As Roadmap Insurance - Gerald M. Steinberg
The record of formal efforts to negotiate peace in protracted ethno-national conflicts (Balkans, N. Ireland, Sri Lanka, etc.) is not encouraging. Israel needs a serious insurance policy, in the form of unilateral separation, to minimize vulnerability to another and potentially more deadly terror campaign, should the "roadmap" fail. The construction of a separation barrier is supported by over 70 percent of the Israeli public, representing a broad consensus from across the political spectrum that favors a physical barrier blocking access to Israeli cities in order to prevent a resumption of the Palestinian terror ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Endless Negotiations: Palestinian Quicksand
News of resumed peace talks have hit the headlines -- on September 1st, international leaders will break bread and on September 2nd, ostensibly well-rested and full-bellied, they will resume direct peace negotiations. Sadly, the photo opportunity will provide little more than the occasion for spectators to juxtapose this photo alongside similar ones over a span of nearly two decades. While this may make for a lovely Sunday afternoon activity with our children as we instill in them their first lesson in distinction versus difference, it can only signal worsening conditions for the Palestinians whose livelihoods deteriorate in the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Defence Ministry and foreign policy pay-offs (3)
THIS is one side of the preventive diplomacy third party interventions. The other side of the prevention statecraft is one that addresses the task of developing strategies that facilitate negotiated settlements of ideological and sovereignty conflicts. These two tasks are the homework of nations prone to peace-support conflicts; that is, conflicts that take the form of winner-takes-all, conflicts of zero-sum outcomes; where parties can only envisage peace at the expense of opponents. Africa is a region of such conflicts. When peace support operations are understood in terms of conflict prevention and management of conflicts ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Do Pakistani's need a visa for Palestine? - Yahoo! Answers
Hello! I am a grad student at Stanford studying International Conflict Management and Negotiation. I was wondering if I needed a visa for Palestine, as I am hoping to do an internship there. I know that I am not allowed in Israel, so another question I have is whether I can only get to Palestine through Israel? Does that mean that no Pakistani can go to Palestine? Because our passports say 'valid in every country except Israel'. There is no way to fly from Jordan or Egypt? Thanks btw for your help George! 1 year ago Hi -- as there is no such country as Palestine, and as access to both the West Bank and Gaza are ...
