Hello and thank you for visiting our blog site, The Texas Conflict Coach™. I began my journey close to 20 years ago working with people in distress over unresolved conflict. My passion has been to support people and teams move through conflict fearlessly, constructively and collaboratively.
Join me and our special guests live every Tuesday for a 30 minute program.
Our program aims to “Coach you through conflict constructively” to
• Become more self-aware
• Build your conflict competency skills
• Learn to negotiate effectively
• Manage and cool your hot buttons
• Learn resources and tools for effective conflict management
You will hear about all kinds of situations and strategies to deal with those stressful conflict tensions that show up in our everyday lives whether it be at work, in our relationships with family or neighbors, in our communities and church, in your business partnerships, or just simply the conflict we deal within ourselves.
