My Vision: Developing Conflict Positive Workplaces

  • Articulate workplace communities where difficult conversations are encouraged, skifuly managed, and reflected on as opportunities to build ‘the bigger picture’ scenarios.
  • Conflict is seen as a creative opportunity for individual and organisational growth, rather than defensive reactions.
  • Leaders proactively seek to develop their conflict competencies, provide coaching to teams, and seek feedback.
  • Modelling of confidence and empathy in conflict is developed throughout the organisation.
  • Individual staff are supported to take responsibility and are motivated to build better interpersonal relationships in their work
