Re: GR:Many hands make light work, 23rd Sep. 7:30 pm AEST

What are some strategies to prevent unnecessary conflict?/If it does arise, what are some ways of managing conflict in a group?

 

I think what we've been saying about everyone knowing what they're doing and when is super important for preventing conflict! When someone feels taken advantage of, that's when the resentment starts brewing Smiley Sad Keeping communication is going is hepful too!

 

I agree with what @Bee said, compromise is really important and a good skill to have! 

 

When conflict does arise, i think adressing it ASAP is best, so that things don't snowball. Having a discussion with everyone to talk about what's happening is the quickest way to resolve things i feel! 

Good point @WheresMySquishy ! Ganging up on someone or making them feel attacked can really escalate things!

Really great question, and I would say one of the hardest parts of group work! Depending on the task and the group, it can be helpful to establish some ground rules/guidelines or methods of communication early. Having clear roles can be helpful in preventing conflict.

 

If conflict does arise, it really comes down to communication. This can be particularly hard if you don't know your group well!

@WheresMySquishy 

I like the idea of the team leader Smiley Happy Its always better to have someone who can mediate and reconcile what disputes have arisen. Especially when its someone who is like a third party 

Re: GR:Many hands make light work, 23rd Sep. 7:30 pm AEST

@Decal21 I agree that talking is the only way out of conflict. Good point!

@WheresMySquishy I like the idea of saying something positive first!

@Decal21 and @WheresMySquishy Yep communication is key! It's good to have a leader too, to act as first port of call when it comes to queries.

Re: GR:Many hands make light work, 23rd Sep. 7:30 pm AEST

I'm very confused about what this is?

Okay sounds like a really good idea! I haven't worked on a group project in a while now but talking about who wants to do what and then come together at the end and put it all together, no conflicts really arose but I feel the only way to deal with it would be to talk about it.
