Turning Conflict into Creativity: Level 2 Leadership training in Sydney Australia

Change, transformation, and evolution depend on the tension between what is, and what will be.

As we open our circles of self, relationship and communities to the fertile ground of truth and authenticity, we often reveal underlying tensions that were quietly affecting the interactions and outcomes of our life and work. 

This tension can be emotional -- causing suffering, distress, and disfunction -- or it can be creative, inspiring healing, growth, and authentic connection.  

This training will offer ways of working with this tension to foster generativity, to overcome interpersonal challenges, and transform stagnant relationships into the fertile ground of creative new growth in your life and work.

Level 2: Turning Conflict into Creativity - Projection, shadow and conflict in relationships and group dynamics

Level 2: Turning conflict into creativity 

Projection, shadow and conflict in relationships and group dynamics

Change, transformation, and evolution depend on the tension between what is, and what will be; between our current state and our future state; between present reality and our hopes and visions for what could be.

As we open our circles of self, relationship and communities to the fertile ground of truth and authenticity, we often reveal underlying tensions that were quietly affecting the interactions and outcomes of our life and work. This tension can be emotional -- causing suffering, distress, and disfunction -- or it can be creative, inspiring healing, growth, and authentic connection.
