Clear the Air
Intro Workshop

Introductory, virtual workshop format for people who work / lead / work in organizations and want to help shape a constructive conflict culture.

On the way to new work we usually encounter challenges on the human side. Conflicts either escalate or are swept under the rug (neither strategy helps). Without a boss to delegate conflict resolution to, you need other ways to make sure conflicts are being addressed and solved in a way that everyone is happy with the outcome.

Responsible communication and conflict culture
Empathy and need orientation

Appreciation at eye level

Key Learnings

The Clear the Air (CTA) approach is based on the work of American psychologist Marshall Rosenberg and is adapted to organizations on the way to next:land. It helps you to...

  • build individual conflict resolution skills
  • express yourself 100% honestly – without judgement
  • train your empathy skills and see the humanity in anything other people do – even if you don't agree with what they're doing
  • get directly to the core of a conflict and find new strategies that work for all sides
  • channel your frustration and anger constructively without suppressing them
  • more effectively support colleagues who are in a conflict
  • create a culture of psychological safety where people feel free to express themselves they way they are and let their guard down

I was so surprised that complete strangers could be so open and supportive in this setting – even virtually. Good for the soul!

Resolve conflicts constructively = throw cotton balls at each other? ;) Georg clears up such and other rumors in these videos! (German only)

Thank you for the wonderful workshop that left me happy and relaxed. I have the impression that I have found a very valuable key.
