Community and Relationships
Defensiveness is a relational disease. How do we move beyond it to increase the quality of our relationships?
When you notice yourself becoming irritated or angry with someone, it is a great opportunity to learn more about yourself.
Projection is a defense mechanism, where we project what we don't like about ourselves onto others. It's helpful to notice it in action.
We impact each other. The quality of our relationships at work can make a work team more productive (and it is much more fun).
What ingredients increase the possibility that you will have a high performing team?
The latest research shows it is not the content that makes conflict productive or unproductive, it is the directness and intensity that make the difference.
There is lots of evidence that collaboration can reap more rewards than competition. Maybe its time to re-think competition.
What do women encounter at work? The research shows most often women swim in different water than their male counterparts.
Kindness in action means we start with ourselves. How can we be a bit less harsh and more kind to ourselves? And what does kindness look like in action?
