Shaping a Vibrant Culture:
Leadership Tools for Moving from Conflict to Connection
Available in person or via Zoom
Perhaps your staff has had thoughts like these in the past few months:
“I don’t know how to talk to him without arguing.”
"It's really hard to work with her."
“I just can’t relate with him anymore.”
"How will I navigate these conversations when we see things so differently?"
They are not alone.
Nearly every organization is struggling with the deepening cultural divides, and the impact that they are having in the workplace. This hands-on workshop provides your team with stances and concrete skills that are immediately applicable. Participants emerge with more effective ways of communicating, even among departments where ill will has been festering for years. Leaders and staff who put them into practice in their personal lives also find them helpful for navigating relational rubs with family and friends, which in turn help them have a more balanced life at work and at home.
The Healing Divisions™ process is rooted in the latest research in neurobiology, social psychology, empathy studies, moral psychology, and adult education pedagogy. The sessions present dialogue techniques in engaging, humorous, and accessible ways. Case studies help participants integrate the techniques to engage conflictual situations in more effective ways.
Facilitated by Brent Anderson, M.Div., BCC.
I gained a lot of insight into my tendencies when reacting to conflict and have taken steps to become a better listener. That has led to deeper connections with people who appreciate being heard instead of being "corrected." I contracted with Healing Divisions to bring this to our braoder leaership team. - Tony Turano, Commissioner of Cattaraugus County Social Services
Everyone in healthcare could benefit from this process. I’ve already shared a number of the tools with my colleagues! - Nursing Leader
This has transformed the way I talk to clients and groups about their emotions. - Licensed Clinical Social Worker
This has really improved my relationship with my spouse. Having the awareness of how our neurological defensive responses can so quickly get activated and prompt us to assume less than noble intentions... this helped us tremendously in breaking out of the "stuckness" of our usual patterns.
In a world filled with so much divisiveness and a lack of civility, it is important to hone skills for slowing down, listening, and inviting understanding and dialogue. The openness, sharing, and connection among all the participants helped in understanding and appreciating the skills shared in this retreat. I highly recommend this retreat and look forward to sharing the experience with our staff.
