CONFLICT…either you hate it and avoid it at all costs, or you thrive on it by pushing to get your point across to the detriment of others. How we recognize potential conflict or respond to ongoing conflict is a choice. It is a learned skill that challenges your thinking, taps into your emotions, and requires you to make strategic behavioral choices. These choices help build courage, confidence and competence to handle difficult, tension-filled situations.
What is conflict avoidance, and how can it create unintended damage to relationships and escalate situations? More often than not, it is used as a default defense mechanism which often leads to a much bigger problem. You will learn behavioral cues and underlying motivating factors that drive us to react in damaging ways. More importantly, you can make different choices and learn strategies to help you take courageous steps to address conflict confidently.

We continue our Dispute Resolution –Cyber Style series with David Puckett, Founder and CEO of ResolvNow. It is quite normal for conflict to occur between businesses, consumers and the ordinary person. Most of us don’t have the time, energy or desire to use the court system and enter a lawsuit. So how do we give the consumer and business easier access to resolving their dispute with technology-enhanced dispute resolution? How do we unite conflict resolution practices like negotiation and mediation with various forms of technology? Consumers are often unclear and confused about how dispute resolution processes can assist much less how advancing technology comes into play. In this episode “Where Does the Conflict Go? Consumers Using Technology Enhanced Dispute Resolution,” David will address 5 barriers which contribute to this confusion, and the ways to create consumer awareness and an environment that is safe for participation.
Dave Puckett has been in the enterprise technology consulting industry for more than 25 years. His area of concentration is utilization of Technology-enhanced Dispute Resolution and Dispute System Design for online dispute resolution systems for individual, Courts, and Fortune 1000 companies. Dave’s company ResolvNow Corporation launched “Settle-Now” one of the world’s leading online dispute resolution engine and their proprietary methodology Technology-enhanced Dispute Resolution (TeDR) which includes the option to include Emotional Intelligence and Electronic Negotiation in the dispute resolution processes.

On today's episode, we cover conflict resolution within the church and with people. The number of people who consider themselves Christian continues to decrease. It's not that people no longer identify with the ideology. Many are leaving because they experienced disappointment, ran into hypocrites who claimed Christ but acted as if they were in league with the enemy, or had a disagreement with a fellow Christian that couldn't be resolved.
As Christians, the Bible gives us clear direction on how we're supposed to handle conflicts within the Christian body. Unfortunately, things rarely play out like that. How many of you feel comfortable going to your leadership with an issue and feel like it'll be resolved in a positive manner? How many of you have tried to calmly resolve a conflict with a fellow brother or sister in Christ only to be met with anger instead?
We'll talk about how we're supposed to resolve conflicts and what we're to do when the other party isn't following Biblical tenets.
