A gem that I share at every workshop .. because conflict as I see it is a call towards a larger landscape of...

Posted by Rachelle Lamb on Tuesday, August 25, 2015
  • You will be able to approach conflict and important conversations in a more open, grounded and confident manner.
  • You will develop a deeper understanding of interpersonal dynamics and what to track in a conversation. 
  • You will come away with tools that will increase your objectivity, sensitivity, authenticity, awareness and resourcefulness. 

Do any of these apply to you?

  • You feel stuck in your life
  • You feel stuck in your primary relationship
  • Your kids won't listen to you
  • Your partner won't listen to you
  • You don't have the guts to speak up
  • You say things you regret
  • You feel resentful
  • You handle conflict poorly (freeze/fight/flight)
  • You feel anger/despair about the world
  • You're convinced something's missing but you're not sure what
  • You're disillusioned with life and/or relationships
  • You're disillusioned with healing, personal growth and self-help
  • You feel disempowered in your relationships or within the "system"
  • You're ready to develop mastery in your communication
  • You want to become a more effective leader
  • You want to change the world (yep, still a noble pursuit)

This workshop is not for you if:

  • You navigate conflict with exemplary grace and mastery and can remain open and engaged in the midst of verbal "attack"
  • Your life can be described as almost perfect and when you look around, you're fairly convinced that the world will course correct without any intervention

Topics: 

• Alienating thinking and language (our cultural inheritance)
• You don't need to be "healed" .. identifying the "trauma" of our times
• Speaking with compelling honesty and moxy
• Understanding the mechanics of defensiveness
• When "safety" and "non-judgement" become a trap and a rap
• Addressing interpersonal tension skillfully and constructively
• Balancing clear intention/direction with openness and flexibility
• Empathy that liberates versus empathy that stifles
• Mourning and Gratitude as essential anchors

Who should attend?

This workshop is for all who speak. It is intended for anyone willing to do the work to significantly enhance and transform personal and professional relationships. It is intended for all possessed by a longing to learn how to speak their way towards a better day. It is for artists, dreamers, lovers, couples, creatives, educators, counsellors, leaders, managers, parents, mediators and those committed to personal and social change.

My promise to you:

  • I will shake up your existing paradigm around communication (a good thing because the dominant paradigm generates problems for us)
  • I will challenge you to think waaaaaaay outside the box (key to making breakthroughs)
  • You will develop skills that you can implement straight away with immediate results
  • You will acquire a more trustworthy way of seeing yourself, your relationships and the world than through the cultural lens that has informed you for most of your life 
  • Your ability to think critically will be strengthened as will your capacity to respond compassionately
  • You'll have a much clearer understanding of the mechanics of conflict and learn to lean into it with sensitivity, ingenuity and creativity
  • You'll be moved to tears (in a good way)
  • You'll laugh (levity is good medicine)

To speak eloquently, directly and courageously when the stakes are high does not come naturally. It is a learned skill. And if you haven't learned it, which is close to guaranteed in a culture that doesn't teach it, you probably already know that when you need it most is precisely when it becomes painfully clear just how impoverished our culture is in this regard and that you have inherited this same poverty. And in a culture that prides itself on "progress" and "individualism", you can be sure that the stakes will be even higher when it comes to your relationships. The cost of alienation will likely be far greater than what your heart can bear.
