CONFLICT RESOLUTION POOR POSITIONING OF THE PARTIES

From the conflict in John 8:2-11 when the Pharisees and scribes brought a woman caught committing adultery to Jesus, we can learn how to resolve conflicts which are complicated by poor positioning of the conflicting parties.

We can see that Jesus was already teaching a crowd when the Pharisees and scribes (another crowd), brought with the lone woman and placed her in their midst.

She was placed in the middle of her many accusers and all the people that Jesus had been teaching. This was a nerve-racking arrangement as countless censuring eyes converged on her from all corners and it may have been one reason why she couldn't speak up for herself.

This positioning was not appropriate for effective conflict resolution as she placed in the middle of a mob baying for her blood. It would have been better if she had been told to stand on one side facing her accusers with the mediator, Jesus in between them.

If you are entangled in a conflict or called on to mediate one, and you are unable to influence the sitting (or standing) arrangement of the different parties, as Jesus may have been, do what you can to make all parties feel comfortable.

You can bend down to a child’s eye level for when Jesus stooped down to write on the ground, He may have assumed this position to get down to her level so that He would not be towering over her like the Pharisees and scribes.

Therefore learn to position the parties properly for effective conflict resolution preferably with all the parties seated around a round table so that you can resolve tricky conflicts effectively and increase the peace in your home, the productivity of your ministry and the profitability of your business.
