Question
Topic #1

Write a description of a situation you recall where you came into conflict with someone else. It maybe something that happened years ago, or a current issue that just arose.

Using the principles and strategies in your reading this week, describe how the conflict was resolved, or could have been resolved.

Feel free to add material from other sections of the textbook, or your research.

Discuss your ideas with your classmates.

Topic #2

Your book provides a model for communicating negative news. The four main parts of a negative news message (verbal or written) are:

1. Buffer or cushion
2. Explanation
3. Negative news
4. Redirect

Think of a situation in your job where you may need to communicate with someone or a group of people and also deliver a negative message.
Following the sample script in Table 17.1 (see below), post a brief email that states the negative message clearly.
Please comment on one or more of your colleagues’ postings.
Try to be creative and present a different scenario than those submitted so we can build a “library” of sample emails.
