The Roots of Conflict

Why are you in conflict? It’s really simple: you want something. And when you don't get what you want, or your desires are at odds with someone else's, you're in conflict before you know it. 

John and Austin discuss 4 questions you need to answer if you want to get to the root conflict in your life:

1. What type of person are you in conflict with? Figuring this out will determine how you approach resolution, or if resolution is even possible. 

2. What is this conflict about? Dig below the surface to the deeper issue. 

3. How are you engaging in this conflict? Most likely you're either pursuing, attacking or triangulating.

4. How is this conflict impacting you? Being aware of the physiological, emotional and spiritual elements of conflict will enable you to manage it.
