Conflict management styles
First adopted in 1798 to describe a printing plate that duplicated any typography.
Today the term stereotype is commonly used to refer to negative or positive judgements made about individuals based on any observable or believed group membership.
Stereotypes are used by all groups.
Stereotypes are pervasive and hard to remove.
Prejudices refer to the irrational dislike, suspicion, or hatred of a particular group, race, religion, or sexual orientation (Rothenberg, 1992)
Ex: Basketball game.
How you get from peaceful, sport-loving people to advocating violence against someone wearing a wrong T-shirt.
Discussion about the role of media (the internet, TV, ...) as vehicles of stereotypes and prejudices.
What type of stereotype/prejudice is displayed on the ad/video clip ?
Take an objective look on the issue you might see. How do you feel about it ?
Comment: "Television is supposed to be a mirror of the society"
Subtle prejudice activity - comfort in social situations
Create awareness of how subtle beliefs and behaviors can affect social interactions in everyday life.
Research on modern prejudice shows that all people are prejudiced to some degree, even if they are not aware of it. (Dovidio and Gaertner, 2004)

"interaction of interdependent people who perceive opposition of goals, aims and values, and who see the other party as potentially interfering with the realization of these goals" Putnam and Poole's (1987)

How do stereotypes arise?
Us versus Them, Scollon and Scollon (2012)
Contrast two cultures or two groups on the basis of some single dimension
Then focus on this artificial and ideological difference as a problem for communication
After that, assign a positive value to one strategy or one group and a negative value to the other strategy or group
Generalize this process to the entire group; Characteristics are assumed to be genetic or racial characteristics
Result: overall negative impression of particular individuals or particular groups
Note: Profiling example.
Based on the pictures below, answer the questions.
Who would you hire in your start-up company ?
Who would you introduce to your parents during the Sunday family lunch ?
Per group of four, share a personal cultural conflict and give details on how you solved it.
In the field of Conflict Management, Black and Mouton came up with 5 different management styles. According to your own experience and the tab below, how would you describe your conflict resolution style ? Do you think it has something to do with your nationality ?
Do you consider conflicts as destructive or as an opportunity ? Why ?
The five Conflict Resolution styles referred to in the model are characterized as follows
I win, You lose
I lose, You win
I lose, You lose
I win some, You win some
I win, You win
(Black and Mouton)
