We all live in a Culture of Advocacy. Most of us are more interested in being heard than in hearing. So when a coworker trespasses on your territory, your sibling pushes your buttons, or your 15-year old shuts down, make solving the problem your focus and invite your conflict partner to help you figure it out.
The title of my book, Turn Enemies Into Allies: The Art of Peace in the Workplace, says it all. Through interactive presentations and individual coaching, I’ll help you transform conflict by changing your relationship to it. Aikido is the metaphor we’ll use to become more intentional and less reactive, to communicate directly and respectfully, and to create your life and work on purpose.
