The Melodrama of Conflict © Conflict Coaching International
Heroine Virtuous (necessary in order to gain sympathy and motivate others to help her) Passive and helpless (acted upon, mute, needs someone to rescue her, stuck with no choices) © Conflict Coaching International
Villain De-personalised Evil (always assumed to have bad intentions) Active and powerful Upsets the status quo © Conflict Coaching International
Father Figure Powerful Smart Recognises heroine’s virtue Punishes villain Restores status quo © Conflict Coaching International
Hero Totally devoted to heroine Practically useless Not as smart as villain Although well-intentioned, can sometimes make things worse © Conflict Coaching International
Melodramatic Plot Sensational Giant leaps, plot twists Villain challenges heroine’s virtue Fight to recognise and restore virtue Villain over-powered Dream justice © Conflict Coaching International
The Tragedy of Resolution © Conflict Coaching International
Tragedy, choice and learning Complicated plots Characters neither good nor bad, complex and flawed Hero has to talk himself through the problem Hero has choices (although may not be easy ones) May not be a happy ending, but always learning and growth © Conflict Coaching International
Coaching the client to develop her/his inner hero. © Conflict Coaching International
The Conflict Coach Refuse to play the role of father figure – stay with the client as bumbling melodramatic hero. – On the client’s side, empathetic – But practically useless Be the mirror to help client talk to self Help the client turn from helpless heroine to active hero © Conflict Coaching International
Working with the client’s story Ask the client to set a goal – take responsibility right from the start. Personalize the villain – ask for their name and keep using it. Help client to complexify characters and plot. © Conflict Coaching International
Complexify the story – ask for details (without challenging). – Ask about client’s actions. – Ask about history (pre-villain’s action). – Ask about other characters. – Use non-universal language and unpack universals used by client. – Use tentative language to explore the villain’s actions and motivations, explore possibilities even where client is dismissive. © Conflict Coaching International Working with the client’s story
Highlight past choices (good and bad). Explore the client’s suffering. Ask the client to tell the story from other perspectives (role play a different character). Carefully challenge the notion of dream justice. Focus on choices and learning. Focus on improvement and artistry (not a return to the status quo). © Conflict Coaching International Working with the client’s story
