Regulate the Conflict Temperature

Activity 2a.A1 (Domain 2)

Conflict can be constructive if the “temperature” is controlled.

You don’t want the conflict to become too heated but rather warm enough to spark discussion and change. You should be aware and have knowledge of the group as community. Your personal experience will influence “temperature.”

Review Part 1 of Worksheet 2a.A1 on regulating the temperature. Then, using the questions in Part 2, discuss this approach at an internal meeting.
