Conflict Savvy: Skills That Change Your World! — Nov 8 Rochester Workshop

Through thousands of seemingly insignificant interactions, teams unknowingly create environments that are either cohesive or adversarial.  In a recent Gallup poll, nearly 70% of employees admitted they are disengaged from work or actively undermining the efforts of others and managers spend between 30-50% of their time grappling with the fallout of mistrust and lack of cohesiveness.  Gallup estimates this is costing US organizations 34¢ on the dollar.  Fortunately, organizations can reverse these discouraging trends.

The Performance Excellence Network is pleased to host a full-day workshop, facilitated by Anna Maravelas of Thera Rising: “Conflict Savvy: Skills That Change Your World!” (formerly known as Self Defeating Habits of Otherwise Brilliant People®).  The workshop will be held November 8 at the Rochester Athletic Club.

Develop a discipline that replaces the negativity bias of the brain with the biochemicals of confidence and engagement. When we are frustrated or disagree simple reactions shape our careers in subtle but powerful ways.  These often unnoticed responses spell the difference between lasting success and lifelong disappointment and regret.

Discover why attendees have exclaimed, “Why didn’t someone tell me this before!?”  During the Conflict-Savvy! seminar, you’ll learn how to safeguard your career from the corrosive effects of mistrust, anger, and depression and
set the stage for success in your personal and professional life.  Thera Rising’s strategies have been featured in dozens of publications including The New York Times, Oprah Magazine, HR Magazine, Harvard
Management Update and MSNBC.

At the end of the day you will be able to:

  • Turn self-righteous indignation into a search for solutions
  • Open the dialogue with a 96% probability of a positive outcome
  • Be hard on the problem, soft on the people – and maintain your valuable alliances even when you disagree
  • Sidestep the “self-defeating habits of otherwise brilliant people®”

Thera Rising’s seminars are based on insights gained from resolving more than 300 workplace conflicts.  President Anna Maravelas, Psychologist Emeritus, is the author of the best-selling book, “How to Reduce Workplace Conflict and Stress” (Career Press). Discover why The New York Times named her “The best source on workplace tension and mistrust.”

Cost is $325/person for members ($650 non-members).  Teams of 3-4 people from the same member organization registering at the same time $300; teams of 5+ are $275/each.
