A collective effort is needed to develop competence in managing conflict. No one can identify and work on the needs of a community better than the participants themselves. Well-being in a group starts with the recognition of universal needs.
Culture is stablished by the patterns that are reproduced in a community.
Intentionally working in a clear and binding logic or common language, allows prevention and reduction of frictions inside a system.
Conflict can not be managed without a culture that recognizes it and is intentional about transforming it.
A culture that sees conflicts as a constant can be both responsive in the short term and strategic in the long term. Human needs are constant, and solutions may be ephemeral.

We can easily imagine people amusing themselves in a field by playing with a ball so as to start various existing games, but playing many without finishing them and in between throwing the ball aimlessly into the air, chasing one another with the ball, and bombarding one another for a joke and so on.
And now someone says The whole time they are playing a ball game and following definite rules at every throw.
– L. Wittgenstein (Philosophical Investigations)
