“How do I deal with a difficult colleague or co-worker, get on the same page as my spouse or partner, or confront someone who’s trying to undermine me at work?”
“How do I deal with CONFLICT?!”
If you find yourself seeking answers to these questions, this episode is for you.
Today’s podcast walks you through several real life examples of conflict using our L.I.S.T.E.N. framework, a tool we created to help you navigate the messy realities of life, leadership, and human interaction.
More specifically, the framework helps you to identify the pertinent details of your situation, and then leverage the opportunities available to you. These details include:
- How to identify what drives the person you’re in conflict with (Drives Quiz)
- How to recognize the power dynamics at play ( AOC Podcast E63: Power Dynamics in Leadership)
- How to choose the right type of communication style for your context (AOC Podcast E240: The 4 Styles of Communication)
- How to use the information available to determine what influence tactics are appropriate (AOC Podcast E202: Why Facts & Logic Don’t Change Our Minds)
The reality is that the baseline of all communication is misunderstanding. And the better we can deconstruct misunderstandings, the better communicators we will be.
If you want to be proactive about developing these skills, improving your ability to communicate with your audience in a way that’s digestible for them, and gain the knowledge and experience necessary to play “communication chess,” Art of Coaching has solutions for you.
Our 1-on-1 mentoring and live Apprenticeship workshops both offer you the opportunity to gain experience having hard conversations, be coached and evaluated, and walk away prepared to have more successful interactions.
We only have one more Apprenticeship Leadership Development workshop scheduled for 2022, and our 2023 event dates are locked inl Don’t wait to get the formal training you need to improve the quality of your interactions and relationships, and overall quality of life. Sign Up Here today.
