To complete the assignment:
- Conduct the interview so that you have enough information to fill out the Gender Differences and Conflict Chart in the Resources. Fill the table out completely and in detail, and submit this as part of your assignment.
- Write a short analysis of your findings. Analyze similarities and differences that the two of you share about the three issues in the table:
- power and conflict,
- perception of the use of power in the workplace, and
- beliefs that you have that interfere with you being more open to discovering new information through conflict—as opposed to avoiding conflict altogether. Conflict is not necessarily negative and may lead to positive outcomes, so analyze and compare the degree to which you avoid conflict when you actually could learn something from it.
