PSYC305 Motivation and Leadership
Week 7 Discussion
Beneficial Conflict & Cultural Sensitivity
Initial Post Instructions
For the initial post, respond to one of the following options:
Option 1: Conflict can be beneficial to organizations, stimulating cohesiveness and creativity if managed correctly.. Based on this week’s reading, what are some ways that employees can effectively manage conflict in the workplace? Provide any examples of your experience(s) with conflict in the workplace and support your statement to fix the problem with the textbook.
Option 2: Cultural sensitivity is crucial to local and global success. It is very difficult to be aware of and sensitive to issues and traditions we are ignorant about. How can we decrease our own ignorance? Can we be proactive about it, or do we just have to wait until someone alerts us that we are being insensitive?

Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. If possible, respond to one peer who chose the option different from the one you chose. Further the dialogue by providing more information and clarification.
