What makes it hard to be our best selves in difficult conversations? Why do we walk away feeling regret or disappointment, not only in the outcome but in ourselves? This program invites participants to take a deeper look at what matters to them in conflict and gain clarity about how to show up differently in challenging situations. Based on the transformative understanding of conflict, we will examine common human reactions to difficult communications, consider what guides our behaviour in these moments, and develop practical strategies for responding deliberately. The workshop will include self-reflection, group discussions and scenario practice, as well as time to consider the connections between the transformative view of conflict and Buddhist teachings.

In this program we will:

  • examine common human reactions to difficult communications
  • consider what guides our behaviour in these moments
  • develop practical strategies for responding deliberately
  • redefine what is meant by success
  • learn how to respond with greater self-awareness, by considering self and other, rather than reacting

The workshop will include self-reflection, small and large group discussions, and scenario practice.
