How to deal with worldviews you don't agree with.

Two worldviews by default create conflict. If, in our culture, we celebrate diversity, how do you deal with worldviews with which you do not agree?

An interesting concept regarding conflict is that it does not always need to be solved. Conflicts of ideas stimulate critical thinking, conflict between sports teams creates competition, conflict between literary characters creates drama, conflict in life creates invention and ingenuity.

We do celebrate diversity in America and that is a good thing. However the only way to dissolve conflict is to do away with diversity and not many of us would argue that that is a good thing to do. Diversity stems from the idea that there are multiple ways of doing the same thing, seeing the same scenario and solving the problems that all people face in life. Diversity gives us different music styles, different flavors of food, different types of architecture and different genres of literature and movies. Conflict in the Catholic Church led to the Reformation and Renaissance. Conflict during the civil rights era led to greater opportunities for women and African-Americans, conflict in the colonies resulted in the establishment of a free and independent America.

Personal code of conduct and mission statement

Please help me with this problem -
Building the Professional You: Your Code of Conduct and Mission Statement

For this task, you are to engage in 3 tasks designed to aid you on your path as a professional. You are to develop 3 pieces to your professional puzzle:

Your personal code of conduct
Your professional code of conduct
Your personal mission statement
Research codes of conduct for different professions and organizations, and also research mission statements of different organizations. You may want to start with organizations that fall within your proposed career path. Based on your research, develop a personal code of conduct that is based on your personal values, a professional code of conduct based on your personal values and the values of your chosen profession, and a personal mission statement.

For your personal code of conduct, consider the following questions:

What makes you truly happy?
What you value most?
What gives you personal and professional fulfillment?
What excites you?
What are your gifts and talents?
For your professional code of conduct, consider the following questions:

What are your ethical responsibilities as a member of your proposed profession?
How does your conduct support the mission of your organization?
What basic principles of ethical behavior should be modeled?
How can this code guide you through an ethical decision-making process?
How will you deal with complaints regarding your behavior?
For your personal mission statement, consider the following:

What is your vision of the world?
How will you make that vision a reality (or how will you contribute to that vision of the world)?
Describe your standards of behavior to which you will hold yourself.
Include all facets of your being: your emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical components.
How will you define your character?
What image do you want to portray to the world?
To whom are you directing this mission statement?
Assemble all 3 statements into 1 document with distinct sections for each statement. There is no particular ordering in the document that must be used, but it might make the most sense to start with the personal mission statement, and then draft the 2 codes of conduct. It is acceptable for elements of the personal and professional codes of conduct to be the same because your personal and professional lives do overlap
