Conflict, Aikido & the HR Professional

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference

How often do you face conflict? When it occurs, do you typically go “fight” or do you go “flight”? Learn an alternative to fight or flight: verbal Aikido. Instead of being intimidated (flight) or escalating hostilities (fight), Aikido shows you how to remain centered and balanced, and able to redirect your attacker’s energy to a safe place. Verbal Aikido will enable you to defuse anger and find common ground. It will help you find solutions so that your relationships prosper rather than fall apart.
