Keynote # 1

Conflict Intelligence (CI)

Develop your conflict smarts

How tired are we of getting tangled up in that conflict web and repeating those same old conflict patterns? We are all aware of the cost of conflict not only in the workplace but also in our own personal lives. Unfortunately, we are not taught how to understand and transform conflict so we usually end up repeating the same mistakes – and that’s stressful.

Scott gets conflict and he is passionate about sharing the future of conflict – Conflict Intelligence®. CI is a new approach to conflict resolution that enables us to not only clearly identify conflict dynamics but also gives us the conflict IQ (insight, mindset + action) to consciously connect and build collaborative understanding with others.

Let’s get conflict smart!

In Scott’s engaging and informative (+ fun!) keynote presentation, audiences discover:

  • How to get ahead of the curve and invite the new paradigm of conflict resolution – Conflict Intelligence (CI) – to build healthy, dynamic + sustainable relationships.
  • How to increase Conflict IQ (insight, mindset + action) via the CI model to realise next-level workplace communication.
  • How to avoid the 3 common conflict traps that fuel conflict, disconnect relationships and jeopardise our individual + organisational wellbeing.
  • How to practice the 5 CI conscious choices to successfully transform conflict into connection in both our personal and professional lives.

Audience members will leave this presentation with increased CI and the pathway for greater peace – both personally and professionally.

Keynote # 2

Difficult to Connected Conversations

DCs made easy

How much do we look forward to those difficult and necessary conversations? A DC is anything you find hard to talk about but know that you need to. The issue is often how to start those sensitive conversations that will invite open and constructive dialogue. When interactions become difficult, emotions can often escalate and communication can break down. We often fear having the difficult conversation as we are concerned that we may make the situation worse – so we may try to avoid it or if we know we have to have it, we may try and blunder through it.

Scott shares (with humour!) the necessary understanding, skills and confidence to successfully transform that conversation from difficult (+ challenging + tough + unwanted) to connected + confident through a clear and concise 3-step process.

In Scott’s engaging and informative (+ fun!) keynote presentation, audiences discover:

  • How to transform a difficult (+ challenging + tough + unwanted) conversation to a connected + confident conversation.
  • How to develop a mindset with an intent that invites open and authentic communication.
  • How to practice a 3-step process that ensures the transformation of conflict into connection and the strengthening of relationship.
  • How to implement key strategies to deal with challenges while remaining mindfully centred within the chaos of conflict.

Audience members will leave this presentation with the essential insight and process to successfully transform difficult conversations into connected + confident conversations.

Getting to happy

Scott – through personal + professional experience – understands the path to happiness. He shares (with authenticity + humour) the heart-opening and mind-clearing strategies to do so. Scott has travelled to India for over 20 years studying and practicing mindfulness and meditation. In addition, his background in social work + science further enables him to understand and share the psychology and physiology of the mind/ body connection that is necessary to create happiness + wellbeing in our personal and professional lives.
