Conflict Animal Video

So let's talk about the different ways in which people respond to and deal with conflict. For this section what we'll do is we'll talk about some animals. So, let's talk about the turtle. Someone who is like a turtle will, in fact, retreat into a safe place. That's the purpose of the shell. So the turtle has a protective shell, tends not to like conflict, wants to avoid conflict, wants to overlook conflict, and will retreat into that shell as a protective place to be, so as to not address it. There is some fear for the turtle that if they address the conflict openly, that somewhere along the way they'll damage a relationship. So, avoidance is their number one response to conflict and the shell allows them to do that. So, let's talk about another animal. Let's talk about a bear. And this is like a teddy bear, not a grizzly bear. A teddy bear or a bear is also, like the turtle, uncomfortable with conflict, doesn't want to hurt relationships, and we could add another dimension to that, and that is, they want to foster harmony between people. A person who is like a bear will often go along, cooperate, leave their own needs and wishes on the table, so that others can have their needs and wishes met. So that's the bear. Now, let's talk about another animal. Let's talk about the shark. So, very similar to the species, the person who is like a shark, will fight. They'll fight to get their own way. They'll fight to have their ideas heard. They'll fight for others to go along with them. They'll use their energy to convince others that their way is the right way to go. And unlike the turtle and the bear, the shark is not afraid to damage the relationship, because the relationship is not as important to them as winning the conflict. So that's the shark. So, now let's take a look at one of our more collaborative animals. Let's take a look at the fox. So we know that a fox is sly. But in our example, a fox is not sly in a sneaky way. The fox here is sly in a way that will help two parties each get a bit of what they want. So, individuals who are like a fox will manage conflict by viewing it as a challenge. A challenge that will provide space for each of us —each person involved— to get their ideas on the table, their solutions on the table, their wishes... And then what the fox will do is help to sort through, "What of what you want can you get?", "What of what I want can I get?", and the fox will help to reach a compromise, where everybody wins a bit and everybody may have to lose a bit for that to happen. So, now let's talk about the owl. So the owl is a bit similar to the fox in that the owl wants collaboration to exist. Where the owl is different is the owl sees an opportunity to perhaps put all of the ideas together, gather from each person what they see, what they hope for, what their opinion is, and once all pooled together, to create something that potentially doesn't even exist. So, let's put everything together and create something new. A bit like out-of-the-box thinking.
