Quit fearing conflict and navigate it with confidence

Learn how to embrace conflict as an opportunity to turn problems into growth 

Conflict is an opportunity

The Problem:

Conflict is just NOT fun, whether at work or in personal relationships. Our instinct is to avoid these challenging encounters. By avoiding conflict, we:

  • Ignore the problem so we do not have to deal with the outcome.
  • Divert attention away from a worthwhile challenge and miss out on a reasonable solution that we can be proud of.
  • May shut down completely causing conflict to intensify, and thus making the situation worse for ourselves and everyone involved.
  • Feel "stuck" and unable to move on because it doesn't feel good to be misunderstood or have hard feelings.
  • Miss valuable opportunities to learn, grow and find solutions that could improve both ours and our team member’s status.

The solution:

Whether you believe it or not, CONFLICT IS GOOD! It tells us something is wrong! Here’s why you need to embrace conflict:

  • It's an opportunity to solve a problem or come to resolution based on multiple approaches, some of which you may never have thought of!
  • You can get past the frustration and negativity by leaving the situation behind and not have it on your future “radar” any more. You are no longer “trapped.” 
  • Finding solutions will improve your self-esteem and self-concept by feeling well-equipped to handle various conflictual situations.
  • You will gain confidence and diversity in your views through collaboration and self-discovery.

The Response to Conflict Course

Most of us don’t like conflict and try to avoid it because at some point we have been on the “losing end." If you want to be able to get your point across in a way that makes a difference, you must know how to meet conflict head on to achieve your objective. 

LifeThrive's Response to Conflict course will show you how to make conflict your friend and NOT something that generates anxiety.

Finding Direction in the Midst of Chaos

According to CPP, Inc., roughly one-third of the workforce is currently engaged in some sort of workplace conflict with 25% calling in sick to avoid dealing with it and 40% deciding to leave their jobs. Joining this statistic can be easily avoided if you know the steps to intentional conflict de-escalation.

Diplomacy for Extroverts

Some leaders are known for their authoritarian or abrasive style. After developing an understanding of how each style can be communicated, you will be able to communicate the right thing at the right time for the right set of circumstances.

“What a wonderful change”

What a wonderful change Dr. Coker made in just two days! Morale immediately improved and our staff suddenly felt vested in our organization, motivated to improve, in control of their own future and indeed enthusiastic about their workplace. . . You took a rather skeptical, frustrated group of professionals and generated hope, focus, and optimism within a very short period.
