Founding Think Cool Conflict
We incorporated and co-founded Think Cool Conflict in 2010. We set out on a challenging quest to mitigate harmful communication in the workplace, which often results in getting stuck with only three options: fight/aggression, flight/run away, or freeze/no action.
At Think Cool Conflict, we believe that there are many options for effective communication, including courageous listening and speaking, empathy, and having an open mind to consider new viewpoints.
We quickly realized people DO want to get along… enjoy going to work… and contribute to a vision bigger than their own. But something is often standing in their way.
By teaching practical skills that expand not only emotional intelligence but also important management skills to become comfortable with diverse viewpoints, we are a catalyst for organizational growth.
Every day, we contribute to the success and growth of organizations and equip them with effective methods that develop and motivate their direct reports.
We provide HR professionals and their leadership teams with interactive learning exercises, helpful brain hacks, games to engage new thinking and self-awareness coaching that creates breakthroughs in the workplace and beyond.
Think Cool Conflict partners with you to repair your organization’s culture, alleviate tension, and create an uplifting atmosphere with engaged employees — the kind who are committed to growing personally and as a team, and investing in the success of the company as a whole.”
