Thursday October 18 is ‘Conflict Resolution Day’. This is a quick wish for a happy day and a reminder that productive conflict is a good thing. Most of us can always fine tune our conflict resolution skills.
I hope you enjoy these quotes and that you do just one simple thing to strengthen your skills. That simple thing could be reading these quotes, it could be doing some additional learning or it could be practicing a new conflict resolution technique.
“Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict -- alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence.”
“Ideas stand in the corner and laugh while we fight over them.”
― Marty Rubin
“Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.”
- William James
“Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.”
- William Ellery Channing
