Staff Development Essentials Issue 04

Two words that will make you a pro at conflict. And they work whether you enjoy or avoid conflict.

In the first message of his Climate Change sermon series, Jeff Henderson coined the question:
 
What’s it like to be on the other side of me?
 
It struck a nerve with our staff. We immediately rolled the question into our annual review conversations; managers asked their employees; and many of us (the really brave ones) took it home to ask our spouses.
 
In his follow-up message, Jeff took a deep dive into one important facet of that question: how you handle conflict. Whether you’re a conflict enjoyer or avoider, Jeff zeroes in on two words that may forever change how you engage in conflict—especially at work.
