What do I do after having a contentious conversation with a peer?
I was in a workshop with a peer and his staff. My peer was proposing a process I feel wastes time and money. We were polite, but it was heated - and long lasting. We left the meeting with no agreement - other than meeting again in a week or so to finish discussion about agenda items we didn't get to. He agreed to double check some facts. At the conclusion, I said I am sure we can find common ground and create a solution from there.
Any thoughts on followup to make sure this doesn't fester?
We were both promoted recently and there is a re-org pending so we are also starting to bicker about resources and projects. This could easily get out of hand.
We are both High D's (I am a High D High C).
I don't know if the presense of his staff is relavent or not - seems like it may be - we all know each other very well; some of his staff used to be my staff until my peer and I were recently promoted (my peer has to backfill my old position).
