When you face conflict in your workplace, what do you do? If you can get to the place where you see conflict as a natural part of working with others, you have the chance for peace. We begin by asking, what do you really want? Once you know that, what are you and the other going to do about it? If your goal is to listen to and learn about the other, you’re ready to create a strategy. Since you can’t control the outcome, your process is critical. That’s when you discover what’s important to both of you so that you can negotiate. When you reach an agreement, commit to each other so that you have real resolution.

What happens when spirituality and conflict intersect? In our podcast today, we examine how resolution can take place. Spirituality offers you the potential to make peace if you’re present without judgment. When you’re looking at the bigger picture, you may realize there’s meaning and purpose in the moment. As you become aware of the other’s point of view, your spiritual beliefs help wake you up. And living with spirituality provides wholeness in the midst of a challenging situation. We hope you can find a few ways to use your spiritual muscles and arrive at a perspective that flows from your integrity.
When you face any sort of conflict, your body reacts automatically. Beginning with your brain, your first instinct is to protect yourself. And that’s where you get into the danger zone. We’d like to share another way of handling conflict. First, stay present and notice that you’ve been triggered. What would happen if you let go of the story that’s keeping you in a stressful state? By choosing to focus on your body and breathe through whatever you’re up against, you can retrain your body to respond instead of react.
We are bringing conflict into the light for the next four weeks in our podcasts! Today we begin with how conflict plays out in your relationships. After exploring a number of ways it does NOT work, we share several ideas to help you better deal with conflict. When you are listening, or expressing without blame, you open the door to talk with one another. And in every instance, you make sure you know what you and the other really want. Conflicts are a part of life – and you have the potential to manage them well!
In our final podcast focusing on integrity, we are moving into your workspace. Your values are very apparent in your craft when you live from those values. So we wonder out loud, how might you combine integrity and work? Here are some great reminders. Show up ready to work and set a positive example. How about being accountable for what you do by owning your wins and your misses? You know that being respectful goes a long way. And giving credit where your team members need it most can improve the lives of everyone around you. Whether it’s your decisions or interactions or how you serve your clients and customers, what you do really matters.
When no one is watching – are you who you say you are? As we explore integrity in our lives, we move to how it shows up in your spirituality. Since you bring yourself to every interaction, we believe how you relate in your spiritual life is evident in all you do. Today we explore how kindness, generosity, being loving, using discernment and being just amplify your spiritual connection and relationships. And it’s wonderful how there is always room to grow, no matter where you stand right now.
Integrity in your body? Yes! When integrity is defined as the alignment between your behavior and your values, then you will find it in your body. In this podcast, we explore how to take care of your body by paying attention. Then we explore what it means to accept responsibility for your body. What about standing up for yourself? That means no more excuses. And whether it’s a daily routine, the way you eat or drink or how much you move, it takes time. What commitments are you making to yourself?
