Win-Win is the outcome sought after in most conflict resolution strategies, but often we resort to compromise.
Compromise is where everyone gives up something, not really the win-win we are seeking.
What we really want is creative synthesis. Creative synthesis is where everyone’s abilities, values, expertise are validated and respected. Each persons wishes, wants, needs, and positions are clear. Each person can support their own and the other’s position. Through the use of collective energy, solutions are developed so that both parties get what they want.
Now that is what I call Win-Win!
