Purpose/Motive or simply WHY? It benefits leaders and organizations. Leaders like: presidents, prime ministers, military leaders, in business (CEO), or managers, and shift supervisors, even professors! By understanding a range of culturally different approaches to conflict resolution, their options for resolving conflicts are increased.

Common Ground In the business world, Americans are working overseas, and we have people from other countries emigrating to the US It’s helpful to understand how conflict is resolved differently in Western and non-Western cultures. When you find yourself in a situation where multiculturalism plays a big factor, the best thing to do is to find COMMON GROUND. The premise of multiculturalism is that we can belong to many different cultures at the same time, so somewhere within all the mayhem we should be able to find some similarities (common ground.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
