  • Exploring Conflict Competence

    We use this Exploring Conflict Competence case study as an  introduction to our respond to conflict with confidence  training course. the resource contains a case study, and a description of conflict management competencies. In addition it contains a team conflict competence model for constructive conversations. Once upon a time a shepherd was on his way to his home in Shepherds Bush. Coming to a meadow he saw three men standing there, crying. So he stopped and asked, “My children, what is the matter?” And they answered, “Our father just passed away, and we loved him so much.” “But,” said the shepherd, “I am sure he loved you too, and no doubt he has left something behind for you?” The three men answered, “Yes, he did indeed. He left behind sheep. And in his will it is stated 1/2 to the eldest son, 1/3 to the second and 1/9 to the youngest. We love sheep, we agree with the parts to each. But there is a conflict: he left behind 17 sheep and we have been to school, we know that 17 is a prime number. We cannot divide them.”
