LEANING IN TO UNCERTAINTY:
A conversation series
This spring we hosted three conversation about leaning in. Leaning in to uncertainty, conflict and tensions. Tensions that we are all facing, these days more than ever. We invited some of our mentors and friends, individuals who have helped shape our practice and view on how we face challenges and conflicts. We were joined by:
- The Practice of Peace - With Toke Paludan Møller
- Compassionate Conversations - With Diane Musho Hamilton, Gabriel Menegal Wilson and Kimberly Myosai Loh
- Staying with Conflict - With Bernie Mayer
Invitation to Lean in
We have all experienced conflict that hurts. So it is natural to react to it with “fight” or “flight”. We are exploring a fundamentally different way: to engage conflict creatively.
It changed how I show up at work!
Attending the course with Nina, Jay and Rowan made me realize that we are surrounded by conflicts and that we might as well learn how to deal with them in a helpful way.
The Leaning into Conflict course helped me understand my own approach to conflict
as well as how to prepare for and actually engage in areas of disagreement. With increased understanding and tools to apply, my confidence has been boosted.
Rather than avoiding difficult conversations, I’m excited by the potential of uncovering the real interests underlying a conflict and of transferring negative energies into a more constructive search for solutions.
