Conflicts arise when we ignore others’ needs, our own needs or the group’s needs. Be careful not to confuse needs with desires (things we would like, but are not essential). Perceptions - People interpret reality differently. They perceive differences in the severity, causes and consequences of problems. Misperceptions or differing perceptions may come from: self-perceptions, others’ perceptions, differing perceptions of situations and perceptions of threatIngredients of conflict contd:: Ingredients of conflict contd : Power - How people define and use power is an important influence on the number and types of conflicts that occur. This also influences how conflict is managed. Conflicts can arise when people try to make others change their actions or to gain an unfair advantage.
