Know Your Audience!

Anyone who has small children, had small children, or been around small children kjnows–the little ankle-biters are REALLY self-absorbed. I mean, sometimes I feel I could be bleeding-out after being hit by a truck only to look up and see my six-year old ask, “Mommy, you can’t die–who’s going to make dinner?!”

The good news is, most of us outgrow this. The bad news is, some of us don’t.

When it comes to conflict resolution, those of us who are still very self-absorbed…

What Are You Missing-Out On By Not Asking?

I always enjoy having lunch with my friend, Andrea, because she’s been a “big boss” at a big company, and she always has lots of valuable insight about ways to resolve conflict at work (in fact, I wish she had been MY boss when I used to work full-time!).

Today’s conversation took a turn toward women in the workplace. Like many women who have children, I always felt like a “choice” had to be made: Either I continue to work full-time or quit. To be fair, when you work in T.V.…

3 Approaches to Conflict in the Workplace

Conflicts, disputes, adversarial lawsuits, violence, abuse and the plethora of human responses to conflict can radically change the way we view the world.

These human responses are “thieves”: They come to steal, and destroy your peace, your contentment and your equanimity. And not just from you. The values of positive relationships, happiness, security…

Millenials–Conflict Resolution Specialists?

I’ve learned a lot about Millenials lately. As a producer for a current events T.V. show, our next installment focuses on Millenials in the Workplace, and as a conflict resolution specialist, I took a keen interest in learning how Millenials handle conflict, especially in the workplace.

Turns out, they handle conflict differently than us Generation Xers or the Baby Boomers. One expert in the field told me he’s observed that Millenials try to handle more conflict on their own,…

Is Anger Best Released?

A lot of us make resolutions regarding our health when a new year arrives. Losing weight or getting more exercise are often on that list.

But have you ever thought about changing your ways if you are the type of person who bottles up anger … only to explode later?

Many of us think that suppressing our angry emotions is a good thing to do. It creates less disruption and allows us to “move on” in a sort of artificial way.

But then eventually, it…

Are You a Skunk or a Turtle?

Don’t you just love the “animal” analogies that are so common in conflict resolution? I do. They help me remember how universal conflict really is–and make me take a step-back and examine how I approach my own conflict.

So, this animal analogy is about the skunk and the turtle, and here’s how you know which one you are:

You’re a skunk if you’re not afraid of conflict. In fact, when skunks are in conflict with someone, they tend to “stink up the place.” By that, I mean…

Repairing the Hidden Damage of Conflict Avoidance

Katrina Burrus, Pattie Porter Stephen - 1

CONFLICT…either you hate it and avoid it at all costs, or you thrive on it by pushing to get your point across to the detriment of others. How we recognize potential conflict or respond to ongoing conflict is a choice. It is a learned skill that challenges your thinking,…
