Photo by Antoni Shkraba: How To Transform Conflict at Work: One Example I just got concrete confirmation that the training and Coaching I do to help leaders and others manage conflict more effectively actually works! Last year, I created a 10 hour five session training program for the staff of a California state agency. The executive director, with whom I’d been doing leadership Coaching, was deeply concerned about the agency’s overall conflict competence. Every year the agency staff filled out a self-assessment, their annual “climate” survey, about how the agency was doing on a variet…

Photo by Museums Victoria on Unsplash Genuine Question or Disguised Judgment? Asking genuine curious questions is a powerful tool to improve listening, get through road blocks in difficult conversations, and gain compassionate understanding of another person’s perspective. But even when you’re trying to be authentic and genuine, you might fall into the trap of asking rhetorical questions. They are not real questions (even if they look like it) but disguised judgments. How can you be sure your questions are helpful? What is your true purpose? Fundamentally, it depends on your true purpose. …

Photo by Christina @ wocintechchat.com on Unsplash Good leaders navigate conflict skillfully. When I first began Coaching managers, team leads, HR professionals and C Suite professionals, my focus was completely on helping them building skills to understand and navigate conflict and improve communication when things get tough. That is still an essential part of the work I do with clients, but I’ve realized over the years that I need to call what I do leadership Coaching as well. Why? Because being able to deal effectively with conflict, your own and others people’s is an essential leadersh…

Photo by Krys Amon on Unsplash Graphic by Lorraine Segal What is the Rashomon Effect? And how can it help with Conflict? In my twenties, I got hooked on old Japanese Samurai movies and watched many cinema classics. The one that made the biggest impression, so that it haunted me decades later, was called Rashomon. Rashomon was truly groundbreaking–the first movie I’m aware of to tell the same story from the perspective of three different characters. I wanted to use the movie to make a point about assumptions in a class I was teaching on conflict management, so I went looking online for a mo…

Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash Love yourself and don’t be a jerk is good advice for any conflict. Why? While I want my clients to see their contribution, to own their part in any problematic situation, self-blame doesn’t help you do this in any effective way. It actually makes you more likely to be a jerk. It may seem counterintuitive, but being too hard on yourself makes you defensive and reactive, and actually decreases your ability to take responsibility and discern appropriate actions. So what does loving yourself look like in this situation? You have to view your mistakes with com…

Photo by Baran Lotfollahi on Unsplash Is conflict transformation a Hero’s Journey? Last week I attended a beautiful workshop on the Hero’s Journey, offered by Stella Orange and Rebecca Liston of Las Peregrinas. Their approach is based in part on Joseph Campbell’s, and they apply it primarily to business and marketing. Listening to their eloquent explanations, I was struck by how this applies to transforming conflict as well. In an earlier blog post, I wrote about why I describe the work I do with clients as conflict transformation rather than conflict resolution or conflict management.Tr…
