Workplace conflicts currently occupy the average working person an estimated time-equivalent of 12 days/year. The majority of these conflicts stem from different views about subjective matters. The very diversity that creates the conflict is an opportunity to learn, grow and co-create. Often, however, the time, effort and skills required to benefit from this diversity make us choose to simply work on removing the conflict as quickly as possible. 

This book provides an updated and no-nonsense framework for understanding and then overcoming the unconscious biases that hinder our ability to deal with disagreements and conflict in a constructive way.

With the help of sound and up to date insights about the Neuroscience of Conflict, you will be guided through an understanding that will forever change the way you talk, listen and negotiate during stressful conversations.

You will learn a simple five-step approach, proven effective by hundreds of leaders in blue chip organizations, that will make you and our teams able to transform workplace conflicts into positive opportunities for open constructive dialogues leading to co-creation and enhanced engagement.

She founded Grooa, a partnership of international business consultants and coaches operating in Europe and has since successfully coached and trained in coaching skills hundreds of executives.
