Bi-Monthly Program

Embracing Conflict: Understand it, Resolve it, Turn it into Opportunities

Disagreements and differing opinions are not “if” they are “when”.  How you react and respond to conflict determines whether it will be turned into something productive or something detrimental.  Karen Pelot draws from more than 10 years as a Florida Supreme Court certified circuit civil mediator to help you quickly identify the root of conflict, and provides tools to enable you to move swiftly to resolution. 

This interactive session offers: 

  • Learn 3 truths about conflict that will change the way you view it, help you resolve it quickly, and find the opportunities hidden within it
  • Identify your go-to conflict style, and learn when it is or is not the most effective situational choice
  • Gain tips on effectively working with conflict styles that are different than yours

Celebration Lunch

(Members please register as attending Both the program and the lunch if you can stay so we have an accurate headcount!)

We will have a luncheon immediately following the bi-monthly meeting.  We will combine a celebration of our 15th year at the GOOD Network with some holiday cheer and thank you gifts for members who attend!
