expectations in dealings with everyday conflicts
Expectations in Dealings with “Everyday” Conflicts
  • Presume Good Will (do not be easily offended)
  • If something occurs in which you are offended/upset or feel unsafe:
    • Address issue calmly, promptly and with the individual first.
    • If not resolved, speak with coaches for further action.
    • If issue is resolved, let it go and move on. Do not hold grudges.
