ResolvingConflicts

Inregards to the situation that my boss is breathing down my neckcutting costs in my department caring less about slashing my budgetthinly as possible in order to cub with this issue. However, thissituation becomes of great concerned to my workers since thecontinuous cost cutting will later affect my employees since the factthat there is no enough money to pay them I will be forced to reducetheir salaries (Blake and Mouton, 2004). Since this is a decisionthat would affect everyone, I would therefore use consultativedecision-making. Consulting workers on the need to reduce the cost ofproduction will be the best way since every one’s idea is helpfulin decision making Consultative decision-making will pave way fortransparency and also retain employees in future business operationtimes.An assertive confrontation consists of vital elements whichinclude describing ones behavior, expressing the emotions, explainingthe effects, stating the desired change, consequences, invitingoptions for resolution and offering support. In preparing anassertive confrontation message for Manuel, I would say that I havenoted that he has been frequently coming to my office. I would saythat the frequent visit and discussion of other workers will haslowered the moral of other workers. Threatening to leave this firm toseek for another job will not only be a threat to me but alsomistrust by fellow employees. We should be considering other people’swelfare other that only our selfish needs (Chinn, 2006). I would alsotell Manuel that I would also like to pay everyone more, but themarket budget consideration does not allow In my message to Manuel, Idecided to use the points of the consequences that would befall,inviting options for resolving and also explaining the workingwarrantee in case the problem is not solved. By including all theseinformation in my assertive confrontation message to Manuel, he willbe able to decide what should be done and why, also the consequencesand importance of any decision intended to be made by him

Accordingto Marrisa, he used the best type of decision making. Since thematters affects everyone, there is need to involve everyone concernedin the decision making process. I therefore second Marissa in thetype of decision she used. However, the good decision model used, Istill criticize her assertive confrontation message since she appearsto be rude at some point of advising Manuel. Workers should never bemocked but instead listened to and also advised politely (Kritek,1994).

Thesecond student also provides a better type of decision making.Consultation is the key aspect to good decision making since it isbelieved that dialogue is the best tool for conflict solving (Blakeand Mouton, 2004). More so, Sankara delivers a good assertiveconfrontation message since he wholly describes the matter at handand also states the impacts of the issue to fellow workers and to theorganization. Sankara also vividly describes the best solutions andalso gives Manuel alternatives.
