When we are in a conflict - or see a conflict - we also are in a mental territory from where we experience the conflict. To be able to work with the conflict we need to move into a Solving Territory. We cannot stay in our Home territory. Same goes for the facilitator or consultant that support the process.
All parties involved need to move into the Solving Territory.
The Solving Territory is mainly a mental territory. But "real" parameters can be important. Such as the S-territory should be located in a neutral physical location.
More thinking to come....
