In this training, everyone has to drop their illusions and face the truth about their brilliance and brokenness and how it affects the joy and productivity of the workplace EVERY DAY! Includes 30 days of training and coaching for up to 12 participants. Each person in the training will better understand:

  • Why certain parts of their job feel easy and other parts – they’d rather avoid.
  • Why they tend to get stuck in certain conflict situations.
  • Why some types of customers (or colleagues) drive them absolutely crazy.
  • What it looks like to bring their highest and best contribution every day, in every situation.
  • How to work with team members more effectively.

Nothing will test our mettle as leaders like looming conflict. But once we get good at it, we have the “silver bullet” to slay the scariest monsters that kill our productivity and steal the good morale from our teams.

This session will make your team better at:

  • Understanding how your brain makes it virtually impossible to have the right response to conflict and how to counteract it.
  • Using the #1 skill to root out conflict before it settles in.
  • Getting the most value possible out of conflict interaction.
  • Figuring out which of the 4 underlying anxieties your conflict partner brings to the “battle.”
  • Taking on the hardest conflict conversations (the ones we avoid for years) in a way that invites breakthrough almost every time.
