Being in conflict is never easy. Being responsible for a conflict is often worse. At times conflict can be confusing and for most of us it is not something we relish. Sorting out your feelings from the facts, the causes from projections, and generally trying to figure out what your next best step is takes courage and a lot of effort.
Having a conflict resolution coach can help. Together (in person, by telephone, or through email) we will discuss the situation. We'll figure out what it is about your current reality that you do not like, and talk about the future you would like to create. We'll explore what is causing the conflict in the first place and see if there are any easy fixes.
As we set goals and strategize on how best to deal with your conflict you will learn how to prepare for conflict in the future. A hard lesson for most, is that conflict is inevitable- even in the healthiest of relationships. What distinguishes the successful is their ability to deal with conflict productively.
We offer conflict resolution coaching services to anyone who wants somewhere to turn. We can help reduce stress, take the weight off your shoulders, and get you pointed in the direction of resolution, improved performance and productivity.
If you are ready to deal with a particular conflict contact us for a free consultation. This can either be in person, by phone, or through email. Every situation is unique. However, we typically start with a 3 hour meeting, and then depending on the time lines you establish follow up with regular meetings of an hour, usually every week.
For those clients who are not in the San Francisco Bay Area we offer telephone and email coaching.
