The Power of Conflict by Brian DeCook

brian decookBrian DeCook was one of our speakers in Season 1 of First Fridays Fort Wayne.  He is an expert on conflict management/resolution.  Below is a recent article he posted on LinkedIn.  

 

The power of conflict is amazing. It can humble and humiliate us. It can expose our selfishness and arrogance. It can take a gifted and talented team and turn it into a band of dysfunctional misfits. Conflict can hinder relationships, diminish productivity, and destroy morale.

But the power of conflict can also energize and elevate us. It can take the coal of our character and create a diamond. It can turn a mediocre team into champions.

So why do some teams elevate their performance during a conflict when others fall apart?

March 1 New Venue

We announced last week that we are moving the March 1 First Fridays Fort Wayne event to Sweetwater.  The reason?  Registrations were coming in to the point we realized our current location would not hold the crowd we are expecting.

Someone asked me the other day if this was a permanent move – it is not.

If you have not registered yet, please click on the image below.  While Sweetwater’s space can accommodate many more, there are still seating limitations.  Contact a friend/colleague, and both of you register today.  Remember, these events are free.

See you at Sweetwater on March 1!
