I’ve always liked numbers. They seem certain and definite, and we all have “associated” feelings with them. For example, if a waiter asked you which spicy rating you would like your vindaloo, you might say a “3” if you don’t want it that spicy or tell him “9” if you’re ready to have your mouth on fire.
So, I’ve learned how to use numbers to my advantage when it comes to feelings, reactions, and conflict. More specifically, I’ve found that asking my clients to “scale” different…Continue

Strength and compassion are universal human values. The transformative theory of conflict assumes that our capacity to live up to those values is diminished during conflict's worst moments. The reason Prince was so beloved was his embodiment of those values. Read the blog here.

I remember when kids were taught about the importance of wearing seatbelts or the dangers of smoking; they passed that information along to adults in their lives. “Grandma, please don’t smoke” or “Daddy, don’t forget to buckle-up.” The modern day version is not texting while driving – even when stopped at a light.
Along the same lines, I think we should spend more time teaching kids about problem solving so they can remind us when we get off track and don’t…Continue

When is the last time you REALLY wanted to “go off” on someone? Today? Yesterday? Last week? If you have children, a crummy boss, or a problematic family member, that moment probably comes at regular intervals.
Yet, what I find truly amazing is that many of us (not all of us, of course) are able to control that urge to really let loose and shout, scream, kick, yell, fight, etc. We understand that the consequences far outweigh the benefits of creating a large-scale…Continue

Conflict often involves loss … loss of trust, a future together, a friendship, even loss of life.
What got me thinking about this was a colleague’s story about her nephew whose actions behind the wheel resulted in the death of 3 people, including children.
A HUGE LOSS.
And it affects so many people, in addition to the victim’s family, including his own daughter who will likely live without a dad at home for many years. His wife who is facing…Continue

ANGER – we sure are seeing a lot of it these days – just turn on the TV for a few minutes. What does it all mean?
Emotions are like colors.
There are primary colors – blue, red and yellow.
Secondary colors (purple, green and orange) exist only because the primary ones exist.
The same holds for emotions.
Fear, sadness and happiness are primary emotions. They are the ones that we feel first, in response to a situation. They are…Continue

It's hard to believe, but legal culture still believes the best strategy is to defend and deny. So apparently it's newsworthy that hospitals save money when doctors apologize for their mistakes. Read the blog here.
