Working Through Conflict
More often than not, people are challenged by their inability to resolve conflict in a healthy way. Many choose to avoid it, while others use confrontation as a means of navigating through conflict - a strategy that has other costs and creates an environment of intimidation. Learning to thoughtfully discern the key issues, set emotions aside, and listen openly to others will provide individuals the opportunity to come to new and better solutions that may surpass any single idea. In this workshop, we will look closely at behaviors that keep us from having a healthy attitude about conflict, and will develop skills to bring mutual resolve when one exists.
