WHY WE NEED

RESPECTFUL CONFRONTATION

When people live or work together, conflict and misunderstandings are inevitable. Yet, they still cause stress and chaos that are a drain on health and productivity, on profitability and morale. Why?

WIRED FOR

COOPERATION, NOT CONFLICT

Neuroscience tells us that people are wired to cooperate. Humans evolved a strong physiological and emotional response to conflict because not cooperating successfully can feel threatening to our “survival brain.” The problem is—this triggers instinctive patterns, habits and viewpoints that are detrimental to an organization and the individual.

INSIGHTS AND TOOLS ENABLE RESOLUTION AND

NEW SOLUTIONS TO OLD PROBLEMS

Integrating theory from neuroscience with innovative somatic exercises, Respectful Confrontation teaches skills and tools that tackle the negative consequences of conflict even at the physiological level, empowering people to effect change in themselves and others in ways that reduce friction and increase collaboration, profit and a respectful, empowered culture.
