Webinar: Conflict Management. I Matter. You Matter.

Are you reluctant to bring up conflicts because others might get angry with you?

Most highly sensitive people would rather avoid conflicts if at all possible. It’s anxiety-provoking for us. But here’s the downside. Avoidance does not promote healthy relationships.

How do you approach conflict? Do you get quiet and then pressure mounts until you can’t stand it? Or do you just get depressed? Or do you lose your temper and say things you wish you hadn’t?

I want you to feel empowered and be tactful so you can enjoy healthy personal and professional relationships.

At least half of us didn’t grow up in a family where people listened to us in caring ways when we experienced conflicts. That hurts. We didn’t have good role models to know how to express ourselves or respond to others. Many of us didn’t learn conflict management skills at school. Many of our work cultures don’t demonstrate transparent, caring conflict management as a consistent norm.

So how are we supposed to know the best way to manage conflict?

How can we help defuse anger and anxiety so conflict does not escalate?

If you struggle with these issues, be compassionate with yourself.

I am here to help you learn how to reduce your stress and masterfully manage conflicts.

This webinar is for Highly Sensitive People.

You will learn the two essential tools to stay centered and help others defuse anger so you can create productive outcomes.

Think about the relationships that are important to you. How much would it mean to you to be able to resolve conflicts so you both feel like you win?

Show up as your Authentic Self and maintain high self esteem.

Webinar Format

I’ll give a short lecture that includes a story about how I handled a conflict. Then I’ll coach participants so everyone can learn vicariously. You can make comments and ask questions.

Webinar: Conflict Management Skills for Highly Sensitive People Who Crave Harmony

Highly Sensitive People love peace and harmony. We want everybody to get along and we do a pretty good job of mediating most of the time.

But when we find ourselves in the middle of a situation where people are uncaring or contemptuous, we may flounder. We feel anxious or irritated. Even devastated at times. If we’re not highly trained in Emotional Intelligence skills, we may say things that we wish we hadn’t. Or we get quiet. People get offended. People lash out. People withdraw. All of this hurts.

It may take us longer than we wish to get over a poorly-handled conflict. By the time we do, our relationships may suffer or our career may be damaged.

My first mentor told me: Conflict is a necessary part of intimacy. I didn’t want to hear that, but now I realize it’s true. Knowing how to manage conflict well is one of our most important life skills. It’s the stuff that high-quality relationships are made of.

Everyone: Please email your answer to this question:
What is your most challenging conflict situation?

You can learn how to create meaningful relationships even in the midst of conflict.

I know how important this is because I’ve struggled to learn good conflict management skills for years. I want to pass on what I’ve learned to you so your life is easier than mine has been.

Instead of …

• Complaining repeatedly when your partner doesn’t cooperate with you
• Analyzing what’s wrong with your partner and trying to convince him to change
• Getting quiet and waiting for the storm to pass
• Criticizing your partner or getting defensive

You’ll learn an easy-to-understand template to quickly figure out how to express your thoughts and feelings in a responsible tactful manner. This technique is called “I Messages.”

People will be more likely to open up to you instead of distancing.

You’ll feel more confident and competent to show up as your Authentic Self and speak from your heart while respecting others.

Webinar: How Highly Sensitive People Can Find Peace in an Angry Storm

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

How do you feel when your family grumbles at you because your sensitive feelings have surfaced once again?

How does your body react when a friend rants at you? You know the feeling. You can’t understand what they are saying because your nervous system is overwhelmed. It’s hard to think clearly. It’s like a valve shuts off in your brain.

What do you do when a family member blasts you because you confronted him for kicking the dog?

Welcome to the highly sensitive person’s Achilles heel: criticism and anger.

Highly sensitive people often feel intimidated in the face of anger. We try to be understanding. But when people dump on us, we feel flooded. Our nervous systems freeze up or we explode.

Neither is a position of empowerment. Nor is it the highest expression of love for others or self-love.

But we have a conscience, and we feel bad when we don’t behave in healthy ways. Our pain motivates us to learn a better way.

In this webinar, we’ll explore how to:

• stop cowering or exploding
• remain centered when someone is angry with us
• identify what we’re feeling and manage our intense reactions
• help our loved ones understand us
• ask for other’s support to help us
• stop feeling rejected when people dump their frustration on us
• energetically protect ourselves
• assert ourselves, e.g., respect others and respect ourselves equally
• build our self-esteem
• identify and strengthen our HSP gifts.

WHO’S INVITED: Highly Sensitive People (HSP) and their loved ones who want to understand them better.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 8, 2019. 6:30-8pm Eastern

FORMAT: lecturettes, life coaching and spiritual counseling based on participants’ questions.

RECORDING: You may purchase a recording of the webinar for $39.00. Complete the Contact Page and ask me to email the recording link for this webinar. Specify the webinar title.
