George and Dr. Amy look at a concept from the book, Getting to Yes, in this week’s episode.
The difference between positions and interests can help us gain harmony in all of our relationships. We are really good at digging into our positions, but it is much more difficult to question why we hold our positions. When we dig deeper into the why, we find our interests.
- what am I holding on to?
- why do I hold that position?
If we only try to resolve conflicts at the position level, more conflict arises. How can we manage these conflicts to create win-win situations? Plus, we revisit the L.E.R.A. framework and how it can help find the interests behind the positions.
