How Prosperous Organizations Engage & Empower Conflict

When we talk about prosperity we believe it represents the sum of an organizations best parts; protecting relationships, advancing wellness and fairness, empowering pride of ownership and being highly profitable.

At the heart of our recipe are three key principles:

  1. Conflict in and of itself is not the so much the problem it’s the people who are engaged in it. Their level of emotional intelligence, past experiences and behavioral responses that effect trust and limited training/coaching to find a collaborative or win/win outcome impacts conflict.

  1. Every individual and every organization has a Conflict Management System. How well you know it or not usually is indicative of how well it is working for you or against you. A healthy Conflict Management System will be people centered with a focus on who they are before what they do.
  1. Conflict is inevitable and unavoidable but it doesn’t have to be fatal and costly; in fact it can be healthy and prosperous. There is unhealthy and healthy conflict and we can equip our Conflict Management Systems to resolve unhealthy conflict that increases confidence and empowerment and empower healthy conflict which increases trust that brings out the great ideas not just the safe ones.
