Exploring relationships versus challenges

Book reference - worksheet 2.1

The above model is called Strength of relationships versus level of challenge (low res for quick load up speed).

Being comfortable with conflict is an important principle in becoming a high performance team. This simple model has been influenced by one of the core principles of emotional intelligence – relationship management. The weaker the relationship and connection with each other, the harder it is to get important points across. However, the more people learn to expose themselves to challenge and to open up, discuss and debate how each person in the team feels about and handles a challenging conflict situation, the better the solutions and decision making.
