Handling Conflict with Ease
An Online Workshop Experience
“Conflict is painful. It’s when people scream and shout. It’s uncomfortable. I fear the relationship will come to an end when there’s conflict. I feel threatened and out of my comfort zone. I can’t think straight when there’s conflict. Conflict is when one party wants to be right, and that party is never me. I feel blamed and disrespected.”
Do any of these sound familiar to you? We heard them in a recent online conversation around conflict.
Put two or more human beings together and sooner or later at least one person will be unhappy about something, whether small or large. A few people will confront the issue aggressively head on often creating a big upset, many will avoid the issue altogether allowing resentment to grow and spread, and just a few feel comfortable to engage calmly in the hope of finding mutual understanding.
Where do you sit on the conflict spectrum?
Communicating and clearing the air is key to building trust and respect – which is fundamental to healthy relationships. Once you have some tools for engaging in uncomfortable situations they become much easier.
Join us for this experiential workshop to learn and practice these tools in a safe and fun way.
One of our participants said, “I would love to be confident to be able to say what needs to be said, in the moment, with no regrets. Saying what is right for me and kind to others.”
If you want to learn and practice a few tools to help you feel both comfortable and confident to handle conflict – then this affordable 90 minute class might be just right for you!
By the end of this workshop you will:
- have experienced minimizing the emotional charge so you can THINK clearly
- understand the 3 basic components of dealing with conflict
- have learnt ways to listen deeper & use this to resolve conflict
- have actionable steps that you can apply right away
A week later you have the opportunity to participate in a bonus follow-on session with Liesel and Alison to help you to tweak your experience of applying your learning.
You can practice what you learned AND come and ask questions about what you’d forgotten or what didn’t go the way you expected.
“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.” – William James

How it works:
We use a technology called Zoom to meet online in a group. It’s similar to Skype, with better quality. You’ll receive an easy link to click as soon as you register. It’s better to use a computer or laptop – phones and tablets have challenges with video.
We will send you two short videos to watch beforehand so that when the workshop starts we can dive straight in. We will first learn and experience a tool to shift the emotional charge and then participate in activities that teach us skills we can use to make handling conflict easier.
Yes, you will receive the recording link 24 hours after the workshop.
“For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate.”

And a few words from Liesel:
“The practice of assertiveness: being authentic in our dealings with others; treating our values and persons with decent respect in social contexts; refusing to fake the reality of who we are or what we esteem in order to avoid disapproval; the willingness to stand up for ourselves and our ideas in appropriate ways in appropriate contexts”.
