A couple of days after the family fight in the “The Gift” story, Larry spends hours into the night hesitating and thinking about the prospect of losing both his parents’ support and the financial rewards of being the new owner of the family business. He finally gives in and reluctantly accepts his parents’ “gift” without consulting with Joan, his fiancée.
Upon hearing the news, Joan is hurt, furious, and hopelessly disappointed at Larry to the point of recon- sidering her upcoming marriage with him. A few hours later, she calls her best friend, Aisha, who for hav- ing taken Dr. Rofougaran’s course on negotiation and conflict resolution recently, tells her about the class discussions, “Difficult Conversations,” “Beyond Reason,” and the “The Seven Elements of Integrative Negotiation.” Joan borrows and reads both books avidly and she spends a few hours thinking about possi- ble ways to use the tools provided by those sources to talk with Larry. Empowered by the new light shed on resolving conflicts, she decides to use the insights she has gained in order to negotiate a way out of the impasse.
Please, write an essay explaining how Joan might prepare for her difficult conversation with Larry.John Jay College of Criminal Justice
