The Artful Conversation
49% of workplace conflict is caused by personality clashes and warring egos.
– Workplace Conflict and How Businesses Can Harness It to Thrive. Consulting Psychologists Press(Oct. 2012)
We are constantly in communication with people around us, yet, many times, we do not express what we need to say. The challenges of really hearing others out and saying what we want to say without offending lead many people to opt out of the conversation and avoid conflict altogether. Somehow this approach does not help us resolve our differences or get our needs met in these situations.
The Artful Conversation helps participants learn how to communicate their needs with people in a way that helps build the relationship, rather than hurts it. Actual examples shared from the lives of the participants help them to apply these skills to their lives in a practical way. A deeper understanding of how others perceive and process conflict allows participants to gain new insights into their relationships and how to adapt their style to work more effectively with those around them in the work environment or in the community.
