VOMP – Model of Conflict Resolution

Vent (Express) Carve out the time to vent — don’t be rushed.
Ask permission to vent first, rather than simply dumping a load on the other.
Venting includes Listening and checking the other for impact (V-L-O-M-P)
Owning Here’s my contribution to the mess…
Moccasins This is what I think/feel it’s like to be in your shoes.
Plan What’s the plan going forward; how do we do different or not repeat

note: the V-O-M part is fluid, and may cycle multiple times until Planning comes naturally.
