Tool Box

Each issue of the REPORT features a role-play for use in campus mediation training or inservice sessions.
Credit Where Credit is Due (A Co-Worker Dispute)
General Information:
(for Mediators/Observers/Disputants)

Two graduate student employees in the Research and Planning Office are now avoiding each other after a heated interchange in the break room about a week ago. Their responsibilities in the department often require them to work together on projects. Until recently, things seem to have gone smoothly. The current conflict involves concerns about who gets credit for work that gets done as a team.

Diane feels that John, her coworker, has been taking undue credit for work she contributed to. John feels the break room incident was an unfair attack on him, and he has been avoiding contact with Diane since then. Diane, at the advice of her supervisor, has approached the mediation center, asking for some support to resolve the issue. While reluctant, John has agreed to try mediation.
