What is your preferred conflict style? Give examples of when you have used that style and what tactics you have used.

This is a formal essay, fulfilling the course Gordon Rule requirement. As such it should be written in essay form with an introduction, body, and conclusion and transitions between points. Do not write as a list. Do write as a narrative.
Professional work is expected. Therefore, the essay should be free of spelling, punctuation, formatting, and other grammatical errors.
The essay should be substantive. This means you should 1) give examples as evidence to support the claims you make in the essay, 2) incorporate the vocabulary of the course and the lecture material, and 3) draw connections between what you have learned in the course and in everyday life.
Cite sources, if necessary. Outside sources are not required for this essay. However, if you do use outside resources, they need to be cited appropriately: both through parenthetical citation and a reference page at the end. Any time you use ideas that you didn’t come up with on your own (out of your own brain), you should give credit to the source.
