Level 2: Turning conflict into creativity
Projection, shadow and conflict in relationships and group dynamics
This training is appropriate for leaders, managers, facilitators and coaches
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.
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.
You will learn to:
Develop self-awareness of intrapersonal and interpersonal patterns that maintain unhealthy relationships dynamics
Understand the roots, causes and creative potential of conflict
Identify and assess sources of tension and struggle within yourself, group and organization
Transform conflict in self, groups and others
Understand group or organizational dynamics that cause or maintain emotional tension
Practice in working with emotional tension for more generative outcomes
Have more confidence in dealing with difficult situations that arise
Assess and communicate blind spots and areas of avoidance for transformation
