My approach to conflict resolution is to start by mitigating the risk of problems by earning the trust of my colleagues through hard work, competence, honesty and respect. Many disagreements can be avoided by remembering that most people have good intentions, and listening to each other can lead to a reasonable compromise. However, sometimes confrontations are part of the job. It is the responsibility of leaders to ask questions and look out for the interests of the people they lead. In that situation, I believe that following the policies and procedures that are already in place for handling conflict is necessary.

Finally, it is out in the open. With the Democrats' new mantra "No Ice, No Borders, No Nations," we can start talking about globalism and the agenda of globalism. Although it is being proposed as a solution, "No Ice No Borders No Nations" is not about reforming immigration, righting injustice or stopping the suffering of people caught crossing the border. This is all about facilitating globalism.
