Unformatted text preview: the reciprocal of some needs. Concerns that correspond in this way do not have to be listed if they already appear in the needs column. (e.g. having listed ''clear guidelines'' as a need, it is not necessary to list ''not having clear guidelines'' as a concern). Sometimes under the heading of concerns, it's easier to draw out motivations that don't surface so well when considering needs. For example it's more palatable to say "I fear being out of control and powerless'' than "I need to have power and control". And it is also true that some concerns are more comfortably articulated as needs. STEP 5: 5 REFLECTIONS FROM READING YOUR CONFLICT MAP. Lead with a main argument (thesis) and discuss the following: Discuss: Consider: 1. Common Ground Are there needs and concerns held by all or most stakeholders? 2.

Special Concerns What are particularly difficult areas that need attention? 4. New Perspectives and Insights 5. Leads Before this assignment, what had I not appreciated in my understanding of this conflict? What seems clearer to me now? What have I noticed that is worth following through or finding more information? 10 Conflict Mapping Assignment: Mapping Diagram (due seminar 6) • In the centre circle, define briefly the issue, the problem area, or conflict in neutral terms that all would agree on and that doesn't invite a ''yes/no'' answer e.g. “Bill 115: Putting Students First Act” not ''should the Ontario government restrict teachers’ right to strike?" • In the sectors of the large circle, write the name of each important person or group. • Write down each person or group's needs. What motivates him/her? • Write down each person or group's concerns, fears or anxieties. • Be prepared to change the statement of the issue, as your understanding of it evolves through research.
