I’m in the midst of a series of posts exploring our profound conflict aversion and its toll on businesses, teams, and individuals. In previous posts, I shared a couple of the things we’re taught as children that give rise to our conflict aversion: “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all,” and […]

I was giving a talk on how to have productive conflict when an audience member asked a great question. She was clear on all the advice and agreed that the techniques I was sharing were great…but! “What if get emotional and I’m no longer in a frame of mind to use these approaches?” She was […]

  Sweaty palms, racing heart, sinking posture; that’s where I left you at the end of my previous post: you were deep in the abyss of your stress reaction; battling your stress demons. If you missed it, go back before you read this.  There’s no hope of slaying your stress demons if you don’t know […]
