Moving Through Conflict

Presenter - Kristin Berry

Conflict is inevitable. When a conflict situation arises, you have different choices in how to respond. Overtime, we strengthen and build comfort with one or two modes – but just because these modes come more natural to us, don’t mean they are the best mode for the outcome we desire.  
Join this workshop to learn about the different conflict mode options from the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) and discuss practical techniques to maintain or regain emotional control in a conflict situation.  
 

I am deeply passionate about helping people/teams develop essential presentation, communication, conflict management skills, self awareness and self-care practices in the interest of supporting mental health.
