New post is up on "The Value of Outcomes." Here I take a brief look at why outcomes matter, and why it is so difficult to determine their value.
The importance of a conflict is determined by the difference in value between the best and worst possible outcomes.

New post is up on "Behavior in Conflict." Here I took a brief look at how behavior can impact whether we achieve our goals.
Our behavior is defined by our actions. Understanding behavior is essential to both predicting how people will act, and helping you achieve your goals.

"Spaghetti code" sounds like it should be delicious....
What can happen when spaghetti code is relied upon to operate mission-critical systems? We look at the Toyota spaghetti code debacle and how it could be the bad habits of programmers inheriting code at the heart of the problem.

In case you ever wondered if you should pedal fast, or slow.

Third post is up on "Systems of Conflict Decision-Making." Here, I look at the question, "what do you want to achieve, and how do you plan on achieving it?"
We can define conflict by how and why we make decisions. Systems of conflict decision-making prescribe specific actions for how to best achieve a specific goal.

Second post on conflict decision-making is up. I continued from "What Is Conflict?" with "Types of Conflict," a look at answering the question, "what type of conflict am I in?"
Ask yourself, “what type of conflict am I in?” Your answer will determine what actions you take, and, therefore, the ultimate quality of your outcome.

New post is up. Took a stab at answering the question, "What Is Conflict?" Let me know what you think.
Conflict is a decision-making opportunity. It involves multiple people and outcomes of different values. Conflict is important because outcomes are important.

White House supports Boehner/Pelosi ‘doc fix’ plan
- It's so rare, it's almost hard to believe: Republican John Boehner and Democrat Nancy Pelosi got together and solved a problem.

The only ability that republicans have is to create problems. The only way they can solve problems is to work with Democrats.

Story
Tagline
Business, Politics, and Dispute Resolution
Introduction

I am highly interested in applying dispute resolution in business and politics.  I earned distinction for Political Science from UIUC in 2006, and in 2011 I earned my MBA from UIC.  I am currently attending Marquette University for the Graduate Program in Dispute Resolution, where I look forward to strengthening my conflict management capabilities. 

My strong work ethic combined with a self-starting nature has enabled me to make life changing decisions confidently and without reservation.  As I move forward I would like to work in a team environment, where attention to detail, problem solving, learning, and communication skills are valued and further developed.
