When collaboration is difficult… How to increase your impact in conflict

What are the learnings of this unique individual program?

You use new perspectives to observe groups, collaborative relationships and conflict, enabling you to recognize early warning signs of tension, and to proactively address difficult situations.

You understand the meaning of group dynamics that emerge in situations of tension and threat, so you can work with whatever is happening below the surface as a starting point for dialogue and developement.

You recognize your automatic pilot and personal patterns in situations of intensity and you are aware of what is happening on the mental, emotional and physical leven. You can manage yourself in stressful situations and intentionally make the shift from reactive to responsive behaviour.

You invest in an open, productive working climate by encouraging courageous conversations, creating opportunities to further develop conflict resolution skills on an individual and collective level as a basis for sustainable change and effective collaboration.

You communicate what is important for you in your role, and by advocating your personal mission and standing up for your values, you can make a difference in the professional relationstips that matter.

You experience choice in dealing with intense situations, and you can stay present in a calm and centered way, in situations of resistance, criticism, conflict and emotions. In doing so, you remain a trustworthy authority at all times, especially in difficult moments.

Every conflict situation is different, complex and unique. And so is every person!

Maybe you have a specific question or maybe you already have a lot of background in the domain of collaboration and conflict.

Whatever the reason, feel free to ask for a specific, tailor-made program: a one day online workshop just for yourself, a coaching trajectory of 6 months, an observation of your team, shadow coaching while you address a difficult situation in your department,…

There are many options!
