Weathering the Conflict Storm: Strategies for Ending Destruction
Contact Pattie Porter at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your presentation NOW!
We have all experienced severe, forceful and damaging storms. A conflict storm entails intense emotional drama and destructive reactions resulting in damaged relationships, much like the impact from Mother Nature's wrath. This interactive seminar introduces conflict competence, which is the ability to manage everyday conflict and full blown disputes productively and constructively. As a result of this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Use a tool to analyze an interpersonal conflict.
- Identify personal triggers leading to reactive behaviors.
- Apply STEPS to minimize the damage from intense emotional conflict.
I was impressed with Ms. Porter’s ability to bring up this stressful subject and put everyone at ease from the beginning. Her approach seemed to allow each person in a conflict to recognize and accept their own feelings and contribution, and then point them in the direction of seeing the other person’s viewpoint. I would love to hear more from Ms. Porter and think a workshop type setting would be very helpful.

The content presented in Weathering the Conflict Storm: Strategies for Diminishing Destruction was very relevant, and the exercises made the learnings extremely applicable to everyday conflicts. I found it especially helpful understanding how best to deal with a “reactive” personality."

I recently had the pleasure to participate in Pattie Porter’s presentation Weathering the Conflict Storm: Strategies for Diminishing Destructive Conflict. Conflict at work, or otherwise, is typically avoided or mishandled. Ms. Porter brought her enthusiasm and gave a fresh perspective to this difficult subject. As a new supervisor, this presentation was particularly meaningful for me. I was reminded to take a step back and try to view the conflict from the other side. The content and handouts are very useful and the presentation discussion was truly beneficial. I only wished the length of the presentation was longer so that Ms. Porter could share more helpful information and her great insight."
