Conflict Resolution
Kaylyn Mitchell &
Christie Bett
What is Conflict?
Conflict can come in many shapes and forms. In a
Girl Scout setting, what parties experience
conflict?
Sources of Conflict
Goals
• Unclear, opposing, or
unstated goals
Resources
• Materials, budget, or
attention to a project
Roles
• Unclear or conflicting
roles
• About God, the Earth, or
how early one must arrive
at the airport
• Unclear, mixed messages,
Communications
or information based on
assumptions
• Equal rights; it is better
Values
to err on the side of
people’s feelings
Beliefs
Conflicts Can be
Beneficial
“The most intense conflicts if overcome,
leave behind a sense of security and
calm that is not easily disturbed. It is
just these intense conflicts which are
needed to produce valuable and lasting
results.”
~ Carl
Jung
Differing opinions
and conflict
are
necessary
Effective management of conflict can:
•Strengthen relationships
•Increase your effectiveness
•Develop performance
•Reduce stress
•Improve morale
•Save time, energy, and money
•Reinforce building courage, confidence,
and character
Steps to Address a
Conflict
1.Prepare yourself by identifying
your goal and motivation
2.Prepare by identifying what you
know about their perspective.
3.Identify ways to set a tone to make
the conversation comfortable.
4.State your goal
5.Describe the impact of the
conflict.
6.Listen.
7.Ask questions to understand.
8.Problem solve.

Scenarios/Breakout
1. Two leaders in the same troop are not getting
along. They disagree about how they involve the
girls in planning, what trips they should go on,
and what badges to work on. They have both come
to you (the SUM) with their grievances and would
like you to mediate the situation. They do not
want to split the troop, yet they cannot come to
an agreement.
2. It has come to your attention (as an SUM) that
your registrar has not been contacting parents
or placing girls in troops and you have received
many complaints from parents who are waiting to
hear from someone about the placement of their
daughter. After doing some research, you found
that many girls have fallen through the cracks
and girl placement is a mess. What should you
do?
Scenarios/Breakout
3. You are having difficulty with one of your long
time leaders. She doesn’t come to service unit
meetings, she doesn’t turn in any of her
paperwork in a timely manner, and rarely
communicates or gets back to you. You are a new
SUM and the previous SUM allowed this but you
would like to address it. How do you make this
better?
4. A parent contacts you to let you know she is not
happy with her daughter’s troop. The parent says
the leader is very disorganized, doesn’t
communicate well with the parents, and is
concerned about the troop funds and how they are
being used. According to this parent, none of
the cookie profits have been used in the last
year and there are no plans on how it will be
spent. How do you resolve this situation?
