Opportunity in Conflict™

2021 October 7–December 2

Opportunity in Conflict™: Engaging Difficult Conversations

You have realized that the way you conduct yourself affects the situation around you. In a difficult situation, you trust yourself to be in the moment and see clearly what needs to be addressed. You have found a way of being honest, so that others find theirs. You know that there are many sides to a story and more than one solution to intractable problems. This is why people trust you with the tough stuff.

Participants will

  • practice skills for analyzing and transforming difficult situations;
  • develop an understanding of interest-based negotiation and how to do it;
  • gain new strategies in preparing for and navigating through difficult conversations; and
  • develop abilities in knowing what to listen for and how to respond.

Conflict Management Tips From Our Roy Group Experts

“Problems compound when, in the heat of a conflict situation, we go dark. It’s not that we go dark for any sort of vengeful reasons, either; usually it’s just that our bandwidth is low, we’re not sure what the right course of action is, we’re worried that we’ll weaken trust, or we’re afraid of making it worse.” — Anne-Marie Daniel in The High Cost Of Avoiding Conflict: Six Tips For Handling Disharmony

“Learning how to handle conflict is incredibly important for leaders. It’s important for anyone, really, unless they’re living in a cave on a mountaintop, but significantly so for leaders, as they set the tone for their team’s engagement and ability to work in harmony.” — Alice Estey in From Combat To Connection: Turning Conflict Into A Productive Force

“Most of our clients have been introduced to a coaching approach to leadership at some point in their engagement with us. They embrace the practical tools and the underlying philosophy. The question they inevitably ask is, ‘How does this approach work when emotions are high? When you have “skin in the game” and when an inevitable change of course is really, really uncomfortable?’ ” — Bradley Chisholm in Missed Opportunity: A Coaching Approach to Conflict

— Technology was seamless. Fast paced, well organized, nice and congenial leadership.

— The practice sessions were fantastic. The structure and the process of having ample opportunity for feedback and mentor training was wonderful.

Virtual Practice Lounge

Roy Group’s Virtual Practice Lounge
On The Docks At Nimmo Bay

Prerequisite: Experience participating in a coaching trio ‘à la Roy Group’

Effective coaching requires practice, opportunities to learn and make mistakes. Being able to practice in a structured environment will grow your skills and deepen your learning. The more you practice, the more what you’ve learned will ‘stick.’ So, Roy Group created a safe virtual space for this practice to happen. Welcome to the Practice Lounge.

Roy Group’s Practice Lounge is custom-designed virtual space. The Docks allows participants to move freely through a visually appealing virtual environment and gather in pairs and small groups. No matter where you are on your leadership journey, you can join alone or with team members to practice your skills.

The Docks is a safe space where kindred spirits seeking to engage in the practice of leadership may gather to further develop their skills. An experienced and skilled facilitator will be available to offer reminders about things you have learned with us in the past.

Why might you want to do this?

  • You enjoyed the work you did with Roy Group and want to gain confidence by practicing and integrating the skills you learned.
  • You’d like to practice and connect with others who are keen to exercise their coaching muscles in a supportive environment.
  • You have team members with whom you want to engage in coaching but find it difficult to carve out the time.
  • You would like support in working through a challenging issue and are looking for peer coaching.
  • You’d like to get reacquainted with your stickers.

Focus on Self for Teams

FOCUS ON SELF FOR TEAMS:

Exploring Personal and Team Leadership and Development

Focus on Self for Teams provides an opportunity for a cohort of team leaders to individually and collectively reflect on their life story, philosophy of leadership and future direction in order to gain clarity on the stories they would like to create in the world around them. (See also the Focus on Self article by Ian Chisholm.)

MODULE 1: THE LEADER’S SPARK

8 hours

Enhanced by the use of a sophisticated psychometric tool that allows for a greater complexity of character, The Leader’s Spark invites each member of a team to explore and identify opportunities for raising their game. Then the learning shifts from the individual to the team, where teams learn to analyze and reflect on their shared dynamics in order to uncover the opportunities for higher functioning together.

Participants will

  • explore ways to bolster collaboration, reduce conflict and create more secure, stronger relationships;
  • develop increased personal awareness on who they are and how they show up;
  • gain insights on how their conduct and preferences make an impact on their team and organization;
  • make important choices about personal direction, conduct and practices;
  • offer, share and receive support from other leaders; and
  • construct a plan for personal and professional development moving forward.

Participants will

  • reflect on deepening themes in their story to date;
  • receive feedback from those experiencing their leadership;
  • make important choices about personal direction, conduct and practices;
  • offer, share and receive support from other leaders; and

Part One of The Leader’s Gift is a series of reflective assignments together with a feedback process informed by up to 30 colleagues that results in a focused description of the leader’s edge/ strength/ talent. Part Two requires leaders to organize their efforts and align their leadership with their best work to amplify personal and team performance.

Module 3: The Leader’s Practice (5 hours)

The Leader’s Practice incorporates a 360° feedback process, examining an individual’s leadership practices comprehensive of both quantitative and qualitative feedback from and for the leaders on the team. Integration through leadership development conversations support interpretation of results.
