Many conflicts are triggered by the urge to control space.

This is the original territorial animal instinct.
When you track it back, many conflicts find their origin in this core instinct:
Control space!
Why was that instinct designed?
It was designed for safety, food, procreation.
The alpha of a monkey tribe will control a territory as well as a group of other monkeys.
If someone challenges your power and status in your business they are responding to the same original territorial instinct.
They want to dominate your space, take your office or control your team.
Can you see the dynamics?
