Some believe it is a flaw to be confrontational
and a virtue to be non-confrontational.
I say it is neither.
The flaw is to be EITHER
confrontational or non-confrontational by habit.
The virtue is to be EITHER by choice.
To increase your Emotional Intelligence, reduce your fears of confrontation or dim your zest for getting into the mix of a controversy. Become balanced in your approach to differences over conflict. Recognize that not all conflict needs to be resolved by agreement. Compromise, negotiation, quid pro quo (direct trade-offs), and collaboration are options. Gain the skills to avoid confrontation, embrace it, and walk away as needed. Your Emotional Intelligence will grow as you do.
