How to Have Hard Conversations: Step 1, Conflict «Triggers»
Hosted by Cecilia Sibony

$16 Members* / $20 Regular

Step 1, Managing Conflict «Triggers» at Work, Home and Everywhere In Between

Dreading conflict is as natural and inevitable as conflict itself. Who enjoys the pressure on your chest that tends to accompany an escalating conflict? As much as some of us may not like it, when managed constructively and practiced as a skill, conflict can deepen and strengthen even the most challenging relationships. The goal of this two-hour, interactive workshop is to practice basic skills for those first moments of conflict: the moment of trigger. We will share stories of real conflicts you've experienced, identify our own individual triggers, and learn methods to manage them that pave the way for constructive communication. Activity schedule includes: conflict storytelling, presenting triggers and identification of personal triggers, group brainstorm on methods to manage triggers, and role playing conflict stories mindful of trigger and management method.

*This workshop is Part 1 of a 2 part series. Part 2 will be held at WCCW on Tuesday, Feb. 27, 7-10pm.

After almost a decade working on conflict resolution and community building among Israelis and Palestinians, Cecilia Sibony recently moved to Los Angeles to launch a tahini business with a mission to bridge divided communities with the help of food. In the Middle East, Sesamaise Tahini tries to build productive relationships between Israeli and Palestinian family businesses. In Los Angeles, she uses her skills and experiences in conflict resolution to help individuals and communities navigate difficult conflicts and conversations constructively. In her free time, she’s usually thinking about or planning her next meal. sesamaise.com
