How do you view conflict? Many people view conflict as a threat. Asked for words and concepts that they associate with the term “conflict,” few people offer positive terms. However, within most conflicts there is the potential for a satisfying solution. If managed appropriately, conflict can be a powerful source of energy and creativity.
