Discuss about the Power Raising in Conflict Resolution.
When you are working with others, one can hardly prevent conflict. This is because people have different perspectives. This perspectives and differences in opinion later become conflict. How the group handles these conflicts can either bring advantage or disadvantages to the group. Conflict in a group is however not a bad thing (Chesebro, Cragan, and McCullough, 2017). It makes the group to be more effective. Resolving a conflict in a group requires the members to have patience and respect.
Conflict is an inherent part in human lives and can hardly be avoided. While resolving conflict in a group the group members may choose to share power or elect new leaders in the group. Differentroles can also arise from conflict leading the group to select new leaders for each role. In every group conflict is very important. How this conflict is handled in the group is important for the success of the group as it enable them reach their goals. Power sharing is used to resolve dispute s in groups and it relies on people sharing power in a joint form.
Power most of the time brings negative impressions, thus, power management in a group is imperative as it reduces conflict. A team leader has the ability to raise a member’s power in order to avoid conflict in a group (Sheremeta, 2017). Therefore, power of the group is generally raised when the group members come to an agreement after a conflict.
