When speaking to other human beings from time to time and wanting to move them to act or think in a certain way which is to persuade, you will have to manage wisely the magic of pathos, something that further on I will demonstrate within two great commencement speeches.

Conflict is unpleasant, but inevitable throughout life. In any situation involving two or people, conflict may arise. Conflict can be defined as, “any situation in which incompatible goals, cognitions, or emotions within or between individuals or groups lead to opposition or antagonistic interaction” (Learning Team Toolkit, 2004, pp 242-243). People come from different backgrounds and live through different life experiences therefore, even when working towards a common goal, they will not always agree.
