Why Do We Conflict? — Sept 21 Bloomington Workshop (Morning)

09/21/2017 | 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Irene Kelly, Prisma LLC

Why do we conflict?  The answer to that question is a key to success … for organizations and individuals.


  • What would happen in your organization if conflict were diminished?
  • What would happen if everyone’s work were aligned with their core energy?
  • How does the “energy mix” sometimes generate conflict?  And how can it be neutralized?

The Performance Excellence Network is pleased to host a powerful workshop Sept 21: “Why Do We Conflict: Leveraging Your Core Values & Core Energy to Maximize Your Success.”  The workshop will be facilitated by Irene Kelly, Leadership and Academic Coach with Prisma LLC.

The workshop is a half-day, 8:00AM to 12:00 PM.  Continental breakfast included.

The Core Values Index (CVI™) assesses the core of who someone is at their deepest motivating level. Bring your team to experience how the CVI™ is a quick, accurate way to honor the drivers of a person. This directly creates a better stewardship of people because engaged people perform at a higher level.

This workshop is designed for teams so that each team can explore their unique patterns (though individuals are welcome).  Prior to attending the session, your team will create a plan by answering the following:

  • What are the specific issues / struggles on your team?
  • What has the team tried to deal with your specific struggles?
  • How would the team like to function differently?
  • What outcomes would the team like to achieve?

The session will offer a brief overview of the CVI™, review the elements of each energy and create space for your team to explore how the team “energy dynamics” generates harmony or discord (perhaps even dysfunction).

You will leave the session with:

  • Understanding of how Core Value Energies impact interpersonal relationships
  • Insight into how behavior, due to your team’s energy composition, supports or sabotages efforts
  • Practices to reduce issues / struggles / conflict
  • Options for continued organizational improvement


People invest WHO they are … their REAL CORE VALUES … by using skills, talents and competencies

People invest WHAT they are … by bringing their experiences, intelligence & talents to the job

When the WHO and WHAT are in sync, the integration of core values and tasks leads to making one’s highest and most productive contribution … overall organizational improvement.

What would be different if EVERY person in your organization made their highest and most productive contribution?

NOTE: after you register, you will receive a link to complete the CVI™ (if you have not already completed it).  The message will come FROM CoreValues@TaylorProtocols.com.  Please complete no later than 4:00 pm, Friday, September 15, 2017. You may need to check your junk folder.  You will also receive a pre-session questionnaire to be completed by the same time.

Investment starts at $175/each (for groups of 5+ members).  $200/each for teams of 3-4 members.  And $225/each for 1-2 (non-members $450/each).
