It IS About Me: Self-Care Strategies for Handling Conflict – A MCLAB Series Workshop
Although they’re not often discussed together, self-care and conflict resolution are definitely connected. When we’re stressed, tired, and emotionally spent, it’s easy for small events to grow into major battles — adding yet more stress to our lives.
When we feel strong, calm, and clear-headed about our motivations, we are better able to handle conflicts in a way that resolves the issue and preserves relationships.
In this kind and caring workshop focused on the needs of managers and leaders, you will:
Discuss concepts of wellness, self-care, trauma stewardship, and resonant leadership
Complete a self-assessment on stress responses and needs
Explore the stories we construct about conflict, and the flawed thinking that may be underneath
Create tools for personal self-care
“Self-care is never a selfish act — it is only good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others.” — Parker Palmer
