PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT | Breaking the Spell of High Conflict

Conflict, whether political or personal, can escalate and become toxic, as we keep seeing in the news, on social media, and in our own lives. Our brains start sorting the world into good and evil, exaggerating the differences between ourselves and others.

You’ll leave with fresh ideas for how to communicate across differences and navigate conflict in ways that are useful instead of draining and divisive.
