Embracing Conflict is a self-help guide filled with insights and tools to manage and overcome any challenges you may be facing in your life, be able to say ‘no’ and be ok with it and so much more. It helps to raise your level of self-awareness and empower you to make better choices in your life.
These self-help guides are quick and easy reads for anyone but don’t underestimate the depth and valuable nuggets they contain.
We are conditioned to think that conflict or saying ‘no’ is a bad or negative thing when in actual fact they are not. Conflict is growth trying to happen – we just resist it because it feels uncomfortable. When we say ‘no’ to other people and other things, we are saying yes to ourselves instead of putting ourselves and our own needs last.
Some of the topics covered in these books are:
Relationships – understanding your relationship patterns and conflict management styles
Choices – learn how to make better choices
Values – understand how your values drive your thoughts, actions and behaviour.
Control – learn how to find the balance in your life.
Courageous Conversations – learn how to have difficult conversations with anyone
Evaluating your Relationships – determine the quality and value of the relationships in your life
How to pick yourself up – when the chips are down.
