Looking into the result of Lost in the mood activity, comprehension test, and also the recent experience in my workplace, I used different strategies in these different situations. Each strategy is appropriate in certain circumstance, depending on how the importance of the goal and the relationship. In the Lost in the moon activity, I was in a group with my friends, and the throughout the discussion I tend to agree with what they said. I was acting like a Teddy Bear. The scenario given incomprehension test, the goal and relationship have high importance to me, which made me an owl- Negotiating. Last but not least, the experience in my workplace experience I was clearly a shark- Forcing, as the goal to achieve something was important to me. Abraham Maslow once said, “if the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see each problem as a nail.” In the future, I would like to develop strong conflict management skill in order to resolve problems constructively.

    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.
