This morning a deaf man came into the soup kitchen where Marc and I volunteer our time. He looked nervous and immediately handed me a note letting me know that he was unable to hear and that he also had health conditions requiring him to eat low sodium foods. After exchanging notes back and forth several times, so I could place his customized food order, his final note to me read:. Thank you for being patient and accepting of my disability. I bet your voice is as beautiful as your personality.
Conflict happens, to paraphrase the bumper sticker. It's part of our working life and often a means to an end, a way to work out our differences and reach a conclusion. While some conflict can be avoided, it's usually the approach you take that tends to exacerbate the issue, causing you undue stress and maybe some early hair loss. It's all about the reaction. For these smart thinkers, how you deal with with conflict reveals your character.

Sometimes this detail is your boss. They do know there is a difference between constructive criticism and just being flat out harsh, right? Maybe you can do some yoga at your desk if you've got a really cool, accepting work place. Or maybe you're the type to remind yourself to stay calm and take the high road even though you don't deserve the way your boss is treating you. You have bad days and maybe today is a bad one for them.
