I think a potential additional benifit of "compromises" is that they are not necessarily zero sum games, but you can also grow the pie in a mutually benificial way to the respective stakeholders.

Robi

Absolutely. As I was discussing when I said that the opposing forces can be complementary, encouraging conversations over conflicts can often lead to a better solution. That sort of behavior usually enhances the end result as well as the relationships involved. Definitely "pie growing" behavior :)

here's my opinion.

compromise happens between two people with a common goal. settling happens with one person.

Robi

Hmm, Sylvia, interesting perspective. Feels a bit too simple for me, but I see where you're going with it and I like the "external vs. internal" implication. Thanks for the comment!
