Join Conflict Mediator and Author, Kimberly Best, for Confidence in Conflict: Tools that Work
Friday, Sept. 18th, 3-4pm
The word “conflict” triggers a sense of dread for many of us. In this virtual workshop, Kim Best of Best Conflict Solutions will discuss ways we can shift from thinking about conflict as something to avoid and instead realize it is a necessary part of life. We will discuss how to view the challenges we encounter in relationships as opportunities instead of problems and we will discuss skills and tools to leverage difficult conversations so that we can learn, grow and stay connected.
