2. Dealing with Conflict 7

3. Interpersonal Dynamics Interpersonal dynamics ? are the give and take behavior between people during human relations Interpersonal dynamics grow increasingly complex as more people interact

4. Key Topics of Interpersonal Dynamics

5. Transactional Analysis (TA) Method for determining how people interact When we interact, behavior can be: passive aggressive assertive Performance is greater with this behavior TA is a method of understanding behavior in interpersonal dynamics

6. TA: Ego States Major ego states that affect our behavior or the way we transact through communication: Parent Ego State (P) Critical parent Sympathetic parent Child Ego State (C) Natural child Adapted child Adult Ego State (A)

7. TA: Types of Transactions Within ego states there are three different types of transactions: Complementary Transactions Crossed Transactions Ulterior Transactions

8. Complementary Transactions Occur when the sender of the message gets the intended response from the receiver Generally result in more effective communication

9. Crossed Transactions Occur when the sender of a message does not get the expected response from the receiver These result in surprise, disappointment, and hurt feelings for the sender of the message

10. Ulterior Transactions Occur when the words seem to be coming from one ego state, but in reality the words or behaviors are coming from another Sometimes when people don?t know what they want or how to ask for it in a direct way, they resort to ulterior transactions Best to avoid ulterior transactions because they tend to waste time

11. TA: Life Positions

12. TA: Stroking Stroking ? any behavior that implies recognition of another?s presence Positive ? make people feel good about themselves Negative ? can hurt people in some way Giving praise (positive stroking) is a powerful motivation technique

13. Assertiveness The process of expressing thoughts and feelings while asking for what one wants in an appropriate way Present your message without falling into the traps of being: ?too pushy? (aggressive) ?not tough enough? (nonassertive-passive) Is becoming more global
