Conflict can also be productive and lead to innovative solutions.
Conflict arises from differences, both big and small. Here’s the truth: conflict is unavoidable. After all, you can’t expect others to agree on something all the time.
However, conflict can do a lot of good as well. It can lead us to new ideas, innovative solutions, and ultimately, open the opportunity to strengthen bonds!
But what would you do when agreement and collaboration seem impossible? You’ve tried everything, now, what’s next?
In this episode, I talk with Jennifer Goldman Wetzler, the author of the soon to be released book, Optimal Outcomes: Free Yourself from Conflict at Work, at Home, and in Life, to learn how we can achieve freedom from conflict! Jennifer is a recognized global leader in how CEOs and their teams can optimize organizational health and growth.
Tune in as she will help us get out of the conflict loop by sharing some of her real-life experiences when it comes to dealing with conflicts to achieve her ideal future results. She will also provide helpful tools, resources, and ideas to achieve optimal outcomes in your work, relationships, business, and life!
