The case “Alpha – Beta” is a very interesting case, which could be considered as one of my most favorable cases so far. What interested me was the fact that we had to act totally different from our conventional style. In fact, we were asked to behave collectively, formally, indirectly, patiently, unemotionally and passively. Although we could not make the deal, we all found this outcome understandable and predictable. What we learned from the exercise was to be aware of the existence of cross-cultural differences as well as how these differences affect our negotiation outcomes, then find out what should we do in the similar negotiation in our future.
Throughout countless lives, conflict is regarded as a common fact of life that one must endure. People must learn to handle stress and pressure while also being open to the ideas and feelings of others. Many more people over the years have tried to decipher the best way to deal with these unfortunate happenings and some have come within the smaller measure to achieving the great feat. While this may be a complicated and sinuous road to travel, the benefits of various practices can add amazing improvement to one’s way of living and can even help others in order to benefit all of society. Perhaps the best way to deal with conflict is to simply not give up or not stay silent when conflict and wrongdoings are happening such as in “Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat” by Winston Churchill and in “Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech” by Elie Wiesel and perhaps a closer look must be taken at how these methods affect the situation, how they affect those involved, and how this can help with a person’s emotional well-being.
As described earlier in the introduction part, I have recalled different courses of negotiation in my life from which I have tried to figure out my weaknesses and strengths. Before the negotiation course, I could only realize some of my capacity and limits, for example I might be good at emotional control and bad at active listening. I believed they were not all the weaknesses and strengths that I should realize. In addition, I found it hard to hone my strengths and improve my weaknesses because (i) I did not see negotiation in systematic viewpoint (ii) I have not had enough negotiation experiences. Thankfully, this course has shed the new light on the wide scope of negotiations and how they should be conducted. From this course, I am able to see more dimensions of negotiations and subsequently, better figure out my weaknesses and strengths. As a result, I could find a more effective way to develop my negotiation skills.
Anna Mow once said, “’Peace is an attitude, the kind that doesn’t create dissension. We create hostility when we turn away from what the other person is saying instead of listening to understand. The primary task is to perceive the perspective of those who differ with us’” (Long 146). Anna Mow covers a great point. She says that in order to have peace in the world, we must listen to what people have to say. Even if one does not agree, it is best to not walk away; it creates hostilities between the two people which will bite back in the long run. Pacifism is all about peace between people. The Church of the Brethren has strived to achieve and spread peace throughout the world. Why people choose pacifism, conscientious objection, and pacifism

Given the task to serve as a mediator in the dispute between, environmentalist, forest services, citizens, county government, ranching interest, and timber interest, in Canton County New Mexico, where conflict does exist in regards to the health, and wellbeing of its county citizens.

Divorce, is a word everyone hates to hear but happens at an alarming rate in today’s society. The official definition of divorce is, the legal dissolution of a marriage by a court. In the past, divorce was quite a rare occurrence, but the divorce rate in America is growing faster than any other country. There are several reasons for the divorce rate to be rising; this can be due to an increase in individualism, a transition in women’s roles, and the different expectations for marriage which have changed over the past couple of decades, among other reasons. Although, there is often more than one factor that contributes to a couple making the ultimate decision to divorce.

Amongst ADR techniques, mediation has proved to be the most flexible, powerful, user friendly and most commonly used ADR process. Many people now use the terms ADR and mediation interchangeably, although ADR encompasses a range of techniques, only one of which is

One of those disadvantages of mediation in medical disputes creates expectations that a willingness or offer to mediate is in some way an acceptance of wrong doing in turn resulting in reluctance on the part of all involved to offer or enter into mediation. In , The Royal Society of Edinburgh :Encouraging Resolution and mediating patient/health services disputes stated that ,however ,experience in England shows that especially with court encouragement, recourse to mediation is not seen as a soft option or concession any more than a willingness to consider negotiation in the normal

The representatives in the boardroom consist of both Chinese and German nationals, and both parties bring elements of their culture, such as way of thinking and feeling, into the discussion. In the communication that is taking place here, there are both addressers and addressees. Each culture has a world view of its own, and the two parties are interpreting the messages from their frame of references. In this case, we have both a Western and a non-Western culture, where the former can be described as a low-context culture, and the latter as a high-context culture. This becomes evident as the Germans and Chinese find different things important when communicating. For example, it is important for
