Navigating Conflict with Empathy, Honesty, and Creativity
When interpersonal conflict arises, it’s easy to default to habitual ways of responding that leave us feeling frustrated and misunderstood. In this workshop, you will learn and practice Collaborative Problem-Solving, a neuroscience-based three-part approach to turning a disagreement into an opportunity for brain development, connection, and creative problem-solving.
This is a tool that works equally well with team interpreters, consumers, spouses, manager and employee, or parents and children. Join us to deepen your skills of listening to the experiences of others with empathy, sharing your own perspective with honesty, and creative and collaborative problem-solving.
