The Art of Conflict Transformation

Conflict is something most people want to avoid, yet it's a natural part of life. When approached with integrity, curiosity, and compassion, conflict can open us to new possibilities and deepen our relationships. This two-day workshop will help you embrace both-and rather than either-or thinking, transforming conflict into win-win solutions. Discover how to increase your comfort in dealing with conflict and to build more trust and communication in relationships.
