WHY WE NEED
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?
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.
WHO WE’VE WORKED WITH:
Organizations that have benefited from working with Respectful Confrontation include Oxfam, the World Bank and NASA.
AND MANY OTHERS...
“We’ve offered Respectful Confrontation quarterly at Goddard Space Flight Center/NASA since 2009, with the understanding that the skills it teaches are invaluable. Conflict and conflict avoidance can otherwise take a mental and physical toll on our creative team of scientists and engineers. The training receives glowing reviews, and each time it’s announced, all the available slots are filled within 24 hours.”
