Welcome to Embracing Conflict!

Are there relationships in your life that you find genuinely confounding?  A supervisor?  Co-worker?  Parent?  Spouse?  Child?  Someone you continue to have challenging conversations with no matter how hard you try to be friendly, open, collaborative, and generally the best you can be? 

If that sounds familiar, fear not, these relationships CAN turn around!  You may have heard that it takes both parties committed to changing the dynamic before any change can occur.  In the ideal world, yes, that is correct, it would be lovely if every person you had a challenging relationship with was willing to sit down with you & work to address the issues that cause continued fissures.  However, unfortunately that is not always possible; sometimes people are so stuck or wounded or angry that they refuse to work together to find resolution. 

I have discovered that remarkable shifts in relationships can indeed occur when just one of the parties makes changes in his/her actions, behaviors & beliefs.  I have coached many clients, teaching them simple, easy to use techniques, and helped them to discover new ways of communicating with these 'difficult people'.  It is deeply rewarding to help others achieve incredible success in their new relationships. 

Perhaps the time is now for you give it a try yourself?  Feel free to reach out & drop me an email and we can work together to improve your relationships too.
