Conflict resolution would be much easier if conflict was always with our colleagues or peers, but conflict is often with those who are above us in the organization.
• Discuss a time that you had a conflict with a superior in the organization.
• Discuss the roles that negotiation, power, and organizational politics played in the final resolution.
• Would you describe the outcome as lose-lose, win-lose, compromise, or win-win? Why?
• What could have been handled differently to create a win-win situation?
• Or if it was a win-win outcome how was this accomplished?
• In the end, conflict is good if the organization and individuals develop and grow, they learn from the event – did this happen with the event that you discussed?
Responses need to address all components of the question, demonstrate critical thinking and analysis, and include peer reviewed journal evidence to support the student’s position.
a more complete language. Simple symbols based off of basic shapes that the average human would recognise could be considered universal. However, to fully communicate we would need to express the meanings of complicated things, which are unlikely to be universal especially with extraterrestrials. It appears that there is a universality within the natural world and symbols influenced by it, but it would be close to impossible to communicate the complexities of human emotion and our modern lives quickly to someone without prior context; as where we are now as developed societies is very different to the lifestyles of our primal ancestors. Conclusion Pictograms, ideograms and icons all contribute to the understanding of information, whether that be navigation, education or signage. The Isotype Institute brought about the common use of pictograms within information design, which allowed everyone an equal way to learn and understand information. This is the main reason for designing a universal language, for equality and understanding (Neurath, 2010). However, Isotype’s design is based around Western culture, especially Europe, and was found difficult to transfer to another culture, such as with Nigeria (Neurath.M, 2009 p.g 75-76). Marie Neurath needed to change the way things looked to represent things for the Nigerian people. It suggests that constructing a pictorial language within a culture makes it difficult to understand, and even non-transferable between very different cultures. This also applies to using colour, as explained with David Crow’s example of white symbolising death and mourning to the Chinese (Crow.D, 2006 pg.36). Things have different meanings to different cultures, not everything, but enough to complicate a pictorial language’s comprehension internationally. The colour green is found to represent organic material, living organisms and healthiness. In the instance of the green fire exit sign (fig.7), the colour is used to associate with safety and reassurance, similarly used with traffic lights. However, green is seen as good to a certain extent, an individual can still associate it to something negative. Although, when the colour is paired with the fire exit symbol then it is mostly understood, the majority of the world use and understand this sign. It appears that colour affects understanding, but for us to see the benefits it would need extensive research and real world trials.
