A Matter of Style:
Navigating Culture and Power in Conflict
Would you like to be more competent, confident, and courageous when it comes to handling conflict in your life? Most of us would say yes, but find ourselves doing the same things and getting the same results. If that sounds like you, then you're in the right place. This two-hour experiential journey prepares you to be more responsive and less reactive in conflict by exploring the often-unrecognized impact of our:
Biology Early upbringing Learned cultural norms Habitual response to power
Each of these plays a heavy role in shaping your default conflict style, often dictating how you respond to conflict (if at all!) and whether you achieve satisfying results. It turns out that when we become more curious and conscious about our own habits and history, we are better able to align our best intentions with our actions.
Learn to navigate conflict more effectively
By the end of this course, you’ll have one new life-changing belief about conflict and two powerful questions that prepare you to be wiser about that way you handle conflict, even when power and culture are at play.

Reflections from Past Participants
I’m really comfortable with how I directly I communicate with others, but I’m realizing that there’s a different approach I can take that could lead to a better outcome when I go head-to-head with someone.
Having already heard the five styles of conflict management, I really appreciated the emphasis on the role of power in conflict and that we all have a default style (autopilot) we might go to based on the power dynamic.
I’m realizing that I probably need to take a different approach when things come up in the future. I’ve learned these skills and taken classes like this before but it really landed differently for me this time.
This is great opportunity to examine your own conflict style and gain insight into your typical reactions. Even better, to understand how to make choices in how you respond.
