Have you ever tried to resolve a conflict where one of the parties wasn't all that interested in resolution? Maybe it was you.
Perhaps you acted as if you wanted to find resolution and said all the right things:
- “Let’s find a way to move forward”
- “I know we can work this out.”
Maybe you did your best to adopt an inquiring stance, saying things like,
- “Please tell me how you see it.”
But nothing seemed to work because you weren’t really that interested if it meant you had to change—and so you didn’t commit to the process.
