Conflict resolution, one of the critical 8 C’s, is key to your success.
Love it, hate it. Rabble rouser or pick up & run at the mere mention of the word.
We have many a varied responses to the C word.
Where are you in your relationship with conflict?
And yes, I mean relationship, for no matter what specific conflict(s) you have in your life right now you have a deeply embedded relationship with it.
Finely honed by your upbringing, your culture, your personality & your DNA you have a specific relationship with conflict that affects how you approach it & deal (or don’t deal) with it.
Like a spider web, where a featherweight touch at one end affects the entire web, conflit affects us in our bodies. That feeling like a golf ball is wedged high in the back of your mouth? That tightness in your jaw that runs up to your ears? That heaviness & impenetrable weight on your shoulders? Those dense walls around your heart? That feeling of your feet in thick clay? That sinking, sick pit, butterfly roiling in your stomach? Those hairs on the back of your neck that are standing wildly at attention & flailing away?
All signs of your body’s relationship to conflict.
Is your relationship with conflict a fire raging that’s consuming you & those around you?
Is it stone cold embers that don’t rouse for anyone, nowhere, no how?
Or is it a well tended cosy fire that sustain you when needed but doesn’t overwhelm, consum or put you in danger?
What is your relationship with conflict?
Think on it. Pay attention to your body’s response.
It’ll help you next time you’re in a conflict. I promise.
