Let a Win Be a Win in High Conflict

The definition of a “win” is different in high conflict situations as opposed to ordinary conflict. Not recognizing that a win looks quite different can inadvertently escalate conflict or take a few steps backwards.

In today’s episode, Megan and Bill talk about:

  • defining what it means to “win” in high conflict
  • do you need to reach an expected outcome to have success
  • temptation to keep going when you should stop
  • when do you know if you’ve won
  • choosing your battles
  • avoid opening up emotions
  • focusing on keeping people focused on thinking and doing

High Conflict People explores the five types of people who can ruin your life—people with high conflict personalities and how they weave themselves into our lives in romance, at work, next door, at school, places of worship, and just about everywhere, causing chaos, exhaustion, and dread for everyone else.
