Connect Before You Correct – Conflict Management Strategies with Lydia Cardona
In the year 2020, we find ourselves in a high stress, politically charged, social justice movement while attempting to maneuver a global pandemic. Tensions are high and views are at odds. The setting is a perfect breeding ground for conflict, misunderstandings, and poor communication coupled with high-intensity emotion. How can a businessperson, or a human being for that matter, manage their way through this minefield of potential conflict?
In this episode, we discuss different types of conflict management, tips for how to approach conflict interpersonally and at work, and resources to help you continue your education on the subject.
Lydia Cardona brings her years of traveling and living abroad, as well as training and expertise in conflict management, to challenge our perspectives on why conflict isn't always a bad thing.
We discuss how to find common ground, how to approach a situation with opposing views, and how to continue on the journey to becoming a better communicator.
We had lots of fun, along with some deep discussions on this podcast, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
