No-Lose Method – Turning
Conflict Into Cooperation
The No-lose Method produces a
solution that brings mutual need satisfaction. It is acceptable to everyone,
so nobody feels a loser. It is not easy to acquire competence in applying
this method. Searching for a solution requires
creative thinking: "we've got a problem to solve, so let's get creative". It is
important that you not start the process with one fixed, preconceived
solution or a number of alternative solutions. The important thing that you
remain open to other solutions.

The No-lose Method for resolving
conflict between people is just a special application of
problem solving, involving six separate steps: identifying and defining
the problem; generating alternative solutions; evaluating the alternative
solutions; decision making; implementing the decision; and following up to
evaluate the solution. Only those people directly involved in the conflict

Win-Win sees life as a
cooperative, not a competitive arena. Most people tend to think in terms of
dichotomies: strong or weak, win or lose. But that kind of thinking is
fundamentally flawed, because it is based on power and position rather than
principle. Win-Win means that agreements or solutions are mutually
beneficial, mutually satisfying. With a Win-Win solution, all parties feel
good about the decision and feel committed to the action plan.
To grow a Win-Win mindset, you need to focus on
the development of three
traits: integrity, maturity, and an abundance mentality2...
Integrity. Integrity means treating
everyone by the same set of principles.
Conforming reality to our words - keeping promises and fulfilling
Being loyal to those who are not present.
Maturity. Maturity is the
consideration. Expressing feelings and convictions with courage balanced
with consideration for the
feelings and convictions of another person requires maturity,
particularly if the issue is very important to both parties.
An Abundance Mentality. An abundance
mentality flows from a deep inner sense of personal worth and security.
It is a paradigm that states that this is a world of plenty and that
there is enough for everybody. It results in the sharing of prestige, of
recognition, of profits, of decision making. It opens possibilities,
options, alternatives and creativity.
