Psychology of Conflict

ft. Dr. Clare Fowler,  Vice-President of, Faculty at University of Oregon Law

When our brain detects conflict it moves through 3 phases: Recognize, React, and Role selection. We will find ways to connect with employees in each phase, give employees tips for deescalating and empowering in each phase. We will finish with an examination of neuroplasticity and how positive conflict experiences can reinforce effective communication.

During this meeting, the speaker will help us:

  • Identify what stage an employee is at in conflict
  • Understand what level of communication and conflict resolution an employee is capable of at each stage
  • Learn techniques for empowering employees: instead of telling them what to do, help them to identify choices
