“Make Peace with Conflict: The Radical Results of Well-Managed Conflict”

Contrary to popular belief, conflict is not the enemy. The truth is, conflict is often the best way to create intimacy and trust between people, not to mention its ability to generate creativity and fresh energy, strengthen leadership and loyalty, renew morale and motivation, increase productivity and financial stability and instill a healthy checks-and-balances that promote accountability within families and businesses. In fact, studies show that the most destructive approach to conflict is no approach at all; in other words, avoidance. Yes, conflict can be uncomfortable and sometimes downright painful but if effectively managed, it is a valuable asset in our private and professional lives. The key is well managed conflict, which is why Phoenix Strategies, a conflict management business in Colorado Springs since 1997, has made this year’s 12th Annual Conflict Resolution Conference theme, “Make Peace with Conflict: The Radical Results of Well Managed Conflict”. We want to not only provide an educational opportunity that is relevant and accessible to everyone including attorneys, human resource specialists and managers, but hopefully bring more peace to our community, region and state. The conference will offer dispute resolution workshops on practical skills and strategies for managing conflict in any venue, a customized break-out session, dynamic speakers in the field of dispute resolution plus opportunity to network with other professionals and community members.
