Opening Paradigms Beyond Conflict
This course examines in depth the notion of conflict from different angles. And the paradox that exists in companies between the culture of cooperation and that of competition.
The values conveyed by the younger generations call managers into question. Managers feel sometimes powerless when faced with the resistance and freedom of the younger generation.
This course will also examine how often we remain stuck in conflict because of territorial struggles and because we let others siphon our energy.
A conflict is a dance where everyone finds their own interest until we gain clarity, and make the choice to put an end to it.
Competition or cooperation (13'23)
The culture of competition has been fuelled since our childhood by the scoring system in school and sports activities. Many companies continue to cultivate it: to be the best employee, to be the leader…
While other companies are wary of the atmosphere that this competitive culture can generate internally.
We will see in this video how to get the best out of competition, the attitude to adopt in front of a competitor and finally how to move from a culture of competition to a culture of collaboration.
The need for autonomy and flexibility of the younger generations (10'36)
Generations Y and Z want or even demand greater freedom in the form of autonomy and / or flexibility.
As for the older generations, they are sometimes irritated by this demand, because they find the liberation that the Ys and Zs grant incompatible with the corporate world.
In this video we will explore what these younger generations expect in terms of autonomy and flexibility and how to respond.
Conflict management in the Freedom-form company (10'48)
How do Freedom-form companies deal with conflict?
In a “classic” company, employees in conflict logically turn to their superiors, who will either help mediate or settle the dispute.
In the Freedom-form company, conflict management follows rigorous and extremely empowering processes.
Domination games: why we seek power (10'33)
Most relationships are imbued with an imbalance of power, a relationship of domination that inevitably leads to conflict, whether open or latent. In business, domination is even enacted. We will explore in this video why we seek power and enter into power games: to feed our need for achievement / recognition, our need for freedom and our need for energy.
Domination games: how do we take and give power (12'48)
We spend a lot of energy in power relationships with others. Whether we are the dominated, the dominant or both, we play psychological games that we are rarely aware of and which wear us out. Now let’s analyze how fear, pride, envy, compassion, and finally admiration… can influence us to the point of making us dance under the domination of the other person, until inevitable conflict.
