36: Differences & Conflict

“You're not hearing me.” 
How often have you said that? Certain that you were right.
How often have you heard that from someone else? Someone who felt just as certain.

We all dig in. And then our thoughts are like a runaway train. Our feelings get involved. It becomes personal.

As leaders, it's our job to be the peacemaker, take the higher road. It's not so easy to do. We get tweaked by our teams, spouses, our children and despite our best intentions, devolve into rigidity.

Maren & Stephanie open their hearts on this topic, share some personal stories and go in depth into a few exercises to quickly shift us out the mental and emotional knots that conflict can cause.

If you are exhausted and worn down by the constant right/wrong, good/bad polarity thinking, and you are ready for an alternative, this podcast is for you.
