About this event

Turning Conflict into Creativity 

Exploring projection, shadow and conflict in relationships and group dynamics

This training is appropriate for leaders, managers, facilitators and coaches.

Change, transformation, and evolution depend on the tension between what is, and what will be; between our current state and our future state; between present reality and our hopes and visions for what could be.

As we open our circles of self, relationship and communities to the fertile ground of truth and authenticity, we often reveal underlying tensions that were quietly affecting the interactions and outcomes of our life and work. This tension can be emotional -- causing suffering, distress, and dysfunction -- or it can be creative, inspiring healing, growth, and authentic connection.  

This training will offer ways of working with this tension to foster generativity, to overcome interpersonal challenges, and transform stagnant relationships into the fertile ground of creative new growth in your life and work.

Having completed We are Open Circle's Stage 1 Training is a pre-requisite to attending the Stage 2 Training. Please email rebecca@weareopencircle.com if you have an inquiry regarding this.

You will learn to:

  • Develop self-awareness of intrapersonal and interpersonal patterns that maintain unhealthy relationships dynamics
  • Understand the roots, causes and creative potential of conflict 
  • Identify and assess sources of tension and struggle within yourself, group and organization
  • Transform conflict in self, groups and other
  • Understand group or organizational dynamics that cause or maintain emotional tension
  • Practice in working with emotional tension for more generative outcomes
  • Have more confidence in dealing with difficult situations that arise 
  • Assess and communicate blind spots and areas of avoidance for transformation

A few testimonials about our training:

"The stage 2 with WOC was tremendous and provided me a closer and authentic look into myself and how I approach groups and community and society. This was far better personal growth for myself than the leadership training I received in the past as it forced me out of my comfort zones encouraging new growth and simultaneously solidified my confidence in myself."

~ John Egnatis, co-founder of Grenadier Homes, a homebuilding company based in Dallas, Texas

"Adam and Miriam presented the online training course, "Turning Conflict into Creativity" with a comforting and commanding confidence of their shared knowledge and skills base. Their co-facilitation style is open, engaging and relatable and they provided ample space, structure, content and context to empower self-directed learning. The course continues to integrate and inform me of what’s possible now and that is exciting!"

~ Patricia Herreen, Wellbeing consultant and poet
