I week ago a gave a little lecture for my girl group on the importance of our capacity for empathy and it plays a key role when we develop our social skills, our ability to work individually and in groups with good relationships with children and adults. In other words the lecture was was basically on  our capacity for empathy and cooperation with others and managing conflict. To make it a little bit more fun with talk about we talk about five animals that are used to represent different conflict management styles. So there is the shark, owl, fox, turtle, teddy bear and owl. These representation is pretty much self explanatory and its used in many different part of our social lifes. So very shortly: The turtle represents avoidance and the owl represent cooperation.  The shark is all about competition but the fox seeks to comprise. While the teddy bear only wants to accommodate. After this the girls play some play some scenes that I prepared for them... They are such lovely group of girls and they did such a great job using what they learn and playing the different animals. 
But girls!? Have you heard about
conflict management styles? Which animal are you? Today I wanna play an owl =)

1. The Turtle: Avoidance
The strength of this style is that this person can easily look past conflicts and realizes most conflicts will solve themselves. They are calm on the outside and help de-escalate emotions in conflict.
The struggle with this style is the tendency to minimize, deny, and avoid conflict altogether. Major conflict tends to grow worse when it isn’t addressed.
2. The Teddy Bear: Accommodation
The strength of this style is how likeable and lovable this person is in most situations. How could you be mad at them? They want and need harmony. They will accept blame just to bring peace to angry situations.
The struggle of this style is that a teddy bear may be taken advantage of, becoming a doormat. The can enable others by not allowing them to face and wrestle with conflict. Secretly, they tend to have a low self-esteem and use likability from others as a way to build their own self-confidence.
3. The Shark: Competition
The strength of this style is the ability to be strong, courageous, and bring a conflict out in the open quickly. A shark is a leader that can confront bullies.
The struggles are becoming too pushy, tactless, and hurting peoples’ feelings. Sharks can escalate emotions and create barriers easily.
4. The Fox: Compromise
Their strength is communication and a willingness to find win-win or lose-lose compromises. Often the fox is able to craft intelligent intermediate solutions.
The struggles are deceptiveness and manipulation. People may feel “outfoxed” and cheated by foxes.
5. The Owl: Collaboration
