Conflict is something we often try to avoid.

But that’s not something to be proud of. Want to know why?

If you’d rather be a people pleaser and ignore the things that bug you rather than face them head on – it can fester resentment and erode your relationships.


You can face the situation head on and have a courageous conversation. You can soften the conflict and move the relationship forward.

So how can you learn how to have these courageous conversations?

In this episode, I’ll show you how to avoid unproductive, emotional conflicts. I’ll give you the exact framework you can use to build conversations that lead to conflict resolution.

Listen in…

Show Highlights Include:

  • The two ways you can approach conflicts (and why the second one will relieve you of emotional burden). (1:39)
  • Why approaching conflicts with raging emotions resolves nothing (and an alternate way to handle conflicts that leads to resolution). (9:48)
  • A framework you can follow to hold conversations that lead to healthy conflict resolution. (18:25)
  • Why it is important to shift into ‘listener’ mode after airing your frustrations. (22:24)
