02 Conflict Mastery
Essential Skills for Leaders
Do you avoid conflict? Are you unsure how to resolve workplace and/or personal conflicts?
Research and empirical evidence consistently demonstrate that when conflicts and misunderstandings remain unresolved, detrimental consequences arise within the work environment.
Unresolved conflicts often escalate, creating a hostile atmosphere which hamper collaboration and diminishes the willingness of individuals to share ideas, causing communication breakdowns, perpetuating misinterpretations, and eroding trust between team members. These negative dynamics adversely affect mental health, job performance, and overall job satisfaction.

In this keynote, you will delve into the four key aspects of conflict mastery, gaining a scientific understanding of the root causes of workplace conflicts. Discover the subtle art of de-escalation and how to quickly build bridges. Understand the nuances of active listening, and how to gracefully increase clarity and empathy when expressing viewpoints. We will apply both science and eastern philosophy to help you master issues of finding common ground and negotiating mutual resolutions.
