Become a Master at Resolving Conflict at Home and Work

Conflict, at least disagreement, is an inevitable part of life. We know this. We come from different backgrounds, have distinct personalities, perspectives, needs, values, roles, goals, and priorities, all of which set us up to experience disagreements if not outright conflict.

So, the question is not whether you’ll experience conflict but rather how you’ll handle it. And, unfortunately, we have little training in how to manage it.

This course will give you skills to successfully resolve disagreements and turn conflict into productive dialogue so that you can not only solve your shared problems but also experience enjoyable connections with others.


Our Natural Tendencies are Harmful

My professional experience tells me that many of our natural tendencies during conflict are harmful. Some people go into an aggressive and fight mode, others run emotionally and resort to silence or appeasement, and still others distract and avoid. Although our natural tendencies are intended to reduce the impact of conflict, they actually and make it worse in the long run.

The consequences of failing to deal with conflict are far-reaching. Unresolved conflict is why family members become alienated. It is why half of all marriages end in divorce. It also accounts for 50% of the turnover in companies.

Therefore, dealing with conflict is one of the most important skills you can learn.


The Process of Dialogue

I teach you to deal with conflict through dialogue, a process of communication in which people listen to understand one another’s point of view and then agree upon options to solve problems and/or resolve their disagreements.  Dialogue is the means by which we make it safe to surface conflict and have meaningful conversations in our personal relationships and our organizations.

Such conversations make our relationships and organizations healthier and more effective.

This program will give you the awareness and skills you need to face and handle the difficult conversations of your life. And as you learn and apply these skills, you’ll still have differences of opinion and disagreements, but you’ll navigate them with confidence and skill.

Here is what you will take away from the course:

  • How to prevent disagreements from becoming unhealthy conflict.
  • The mindset, confidence and skills to facilitate conflict resolution.
  • How to calm yourself and manage your own thoughts and feelings during conflict.
  • A framework and road map for initiating and navigating difficult conversations to a successful outcome.
  • Knowledge of communication styles, your style, and its impact on conflict resolution.
