Overview : This webinar offers a new definition of conflict, a new way of looking at it, a new way of experiencing it, and a new way of responding to it. You will learn how to practice conflict resolution through the use of stories, examples, tips, guidelines, and experiential exercises. 

Included in this practice of conflict resolution is a unique model of communication, based upon the tenets of Aikido, which offers supportive principles and can serve as a "roadmap" to achieve "win/win" outcomes.

Why should you attend: Conflict is a bad thing. That's what most of us believe. We consider it to be potentially harmful or destructive. So when it shows up in either our personal or professional lives, we try to avoid it.Nevertheless, I have seen people throughout my career find the courage to engage in the process of conflict and come out the better for it. How do they do that? From what I've seen, these individuals understand that they can approach the practice of conflict resolution from a more allowing and accepting viewpoint.

When we envision conflict from a point of view of acceptance, without the negative judgment, with an open attitude of discovery and opportunity, the process of conflict can become a gateway to greater understanding of others and ourselves. It can be understood as a gift meant to help us move forward.

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • Why we view conflict as a negative and how to transform that perception into one that maximizes our potential as professionals
  • How to accept and be more comfortable with the process of conflict
  • How to stand up for ourselves when dealing with "bullies" and others who we experience as being in a "one-up" position in relation to ourselves
  • The value of distinguishing what is "my side," "my opponent's side," and being neutral
  • How to create a safe "container" when we engage in the practice of conflict resolution
  • The value of "pausing" when in the midst of a conflict
  • To utilize a creative, dynamic model of communication that will help us stay focused on what's most important while engaged in the process of conflict and
  • The benefit of "balancing our lives" and its effect upon our ability to practice conflict resolution
