Video for conflict styles 2

Video for conflict styles 2

Simpsons: Season 7, episode 12

I like to show three videos to demonstrate different conflict styles. This clip is a nice example of the accommodating style.

Midway through this episode, Mr. Burns and Mr. Smithers go to the bowling alley to confront Homer about using  company money to sponsor his bowling team. On a whim, Mr. Burns asks to join the team instead. Homer promises the other team members he’ll tell Mr. Burns “no” but finds himself unable to do so.

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
