Quote: “For me, as a neutral and independent mediator, it’s really about helping the two parties to listen and understand each other because they’re not able to achieve that directly. They’ve ended up in a deadlock.”Avinder Laroya
We have all experienced conflict at some point in our lives, whether it was at work, at home or with a friend. When we’re in that space, we often think with emotion rather than logic, and things can easily escalate to become a much larger issue. When this happens in the workplace, we may need some help to work through the issue(s). On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Avinder Laroya all the way from Switzerland to share her expertise about mediating conflict in the workplace and how it effects the ROR: Return On Relationships.
This was such a great interview packed with so much interesting information about workplace conflict that we decided to turn it into a 2-part series. Be sure to tune in again next week for part II.
