Applying the Stages of Constructive Conflict Management
In Chapter 1 of the text, Managing Conflict Through Communication, the five stages in a constructive conflict process are explained. Write a paper in which you identify a conflict that you or someone you know has had and has already been resolved. Identify and describe the five stages of a constructive conflict process. Then, apply each of the five stages of a constructive conflict process to your example. Your paper should clearly identify each stage and provide details or examples for each stage. You can review Examples 1 and 2 on pages 15-16 of the text for ideas on how to organize this assignment.
The paper must be one to two pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library) other than the textbook to support your claims and sub claims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center.
