Conflict for Women
Finding Freedom and power in conflict
With Mari Kennedy
Thursdays - February 7th – March 14th
Conflict and challenging conversations are difficult for most of us. It can be deeply uncomfortable and threatening to our nervous system but conflict is part of life and isn’t going away. Conflict is also creative and lifegiving if we know how to work with it. In our development as women finding our power in navigating conflict is a radical skill that can liberate us to show up in a more generous, real and impactful way.
This interactive course explores how we, as women, show up in conflict situations. Designed specifically for women we will use mindfulness, neuroscience, self compassion, Integral theory and developmental coaching to work with conflict, the difficult emotions it can bring up and the undesirable outcomes it often brings.
Each of us have a habitual way of working with conflict situations and challenging conversations. Some of us go into conflict all guns blazing, some of us shut down and some of us will do anything to keep the peace. It really helps
On a personal level if you are a woman who consistently finds yourself feeling powerless, hopeless, angry, exhausted or frustrated in conflict, if you feel stuck in an old looping conflict pattern with a partner or family or a work colleague, if you are a mum / step mum of a challenging teenager, if you are negotiating conflict in a divorce or just want to live more skilfully and step into your power this six weeks is for you.
As we women take up our place in positions of power, transforming is an essential 21 century leadership skill. As natural collaborators we have a significant contribution to make in our workplaces and in our communities however to be great collaborators we need to be skilful in conflict.
