Disruptive Behavior/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

Posted on August 4, 2019


President Trump has been referred to, by supporters and detractors alike, as a disrupter. He does not follow the usual rules of Presidential protocol or behavior. Thus, he disrupts the traditional patterns of conducting Presidential business. He has veered from what was once considered to be “normal” behavior.

In a mediation process, a relationship has departed from acceptable behavior. One party, or both, have disrupted the pattern that once guaranteed harmony and cooperation. The mediation process tries to mend the breach by getting the parties to discuss their positions and their ultimate needs. Positive communication is a balm to disruptive behavior. A search for mutually-satisfying options is likewise a way to right the marital ship that has veered off-course. Disruptive behavior in the political arena can be divisive. Check the polls to see if this is correct. In interpersonal areas, it brings unnecessary enmity and abundant anguish. Alleviate the pain of personal disruption. Mediate don’t litigate.
