Using vivid, real-life examples, Sally helps participants recognize the common triggers that can undermine efforts to build strong relationships in a volatile and sometimes reactive workplace. These triggers include:
Sally's emphasis is not on eliminating environmental triggers- which lie beyond our control- but on managing our responses in a way that serves our interests and enables us to engage allies broadly. She offers proven ways to do so, with an emphasis on avoiding stock responses and writing scripts that give others the benefit of our generosity- even if we aren't sure they've earned it.
Participants will come away with an enhanced understanding of how they can build stronger and more harmonious relationships along with tools for diffusing common triggers.
