In one word, how would you describe collaboration?
"Analyze the role conflict and collaboration played in the founding of the United States."
Conflict is when two or more people have different ideas or needs and don't agree. Collaboration is when two or more people work together to solve a problem. Both conflict and collaboration can help us learn, grow, and solve problems.
Conflict and Collaboration
Conflict: A disagreement or argument between two or more people or groups. Collaboration: Working together to achieve a common goal. Negotiation: A process of communication and problem solving between two or more people with the goal of reaching an agreement.
Some people believe that conflict is necessary for collaboration to exist and that resolution can only occur if the two are working together. One of the best ways to resolve a conflict is to start by understanding the interests and concerns of each side. The Collaborative Problem Solving model is a method of resolving conflict by focusing on underlying interests and motivations of all parties involved.
