I always think that it is the perception we have in mind decides how we understand and feel. It is so powerful and conflict arises when people have different point of view. We felt disappointed and eventually get agitated if our expectation was not met. The following describe the scenario where conflict arises between two friends.
Ivan is good in graphic design and famous among his friends. One day, he took part in a T shirt design competition upon request of his friend, Jack who is one of the organizing committee. The winner will be awarded and the design will be used for their club T shirt. At the end of the game, Ivan’s design was not capable to win the vote so he gained nothing. Half of a year later, Jack contacts Ivan and request for his design as the club decided print out the second badge of T shirt with Ivan’s design. Feeling unfair, Ivan refused to release his design unless the club paid him the equivalent rewards as the competition. Conflict arose when Jack argued that as a friend of him Ivan should not ask for anything and moreover, once submitted the design is considered property of the club.
In this scenario, both party have different stand and it seem both of them were not doing any wrong. What wrong with this? Taking yourself as either Ivan or Jack and share how would you solve the problem.
