Why do it

Project Examples

Working in groups, students will analyze a conflict scenario you've provided relating to your organization. Students will analyze the background of the conflict and put together a presentation to explain the roots of the issue and recommend multiple strategies to address it (i.e. a collaborating solution, a competing solution, a compromising solution).

Examples could include, but are not limited to:

  • Interpersonal conflicts between staff
  • A clash in management styles between two managers who need to work together
  • A dispute about the best usage of budget resources


10-12 minute presentation including 3 parts:

1) Students will analyze the background of the conflict (parties involved, the reason the conflict occurred), 2) discuss the parties involved, each of their conflict styles and conflict management strategies, & 3) present possible solutions based on multiple conflict styles.
