Get Trained to Decode DEI Conflicts

Would you be able to identify a DEI conflict and respond appropriately based on the progression, alignment, current and potential escalation of that conflict? If not, read on…

What are DEI Conflicts?

DEI Conflicts occur when there are opposing ideas around issues pertaining to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Maybe you have witnessed DEI conflicts occurring around you at work or in your community and didn’t know how to help, or felt ill equipped to intervene, or perhaps you are caught up in a DEI conflict yourself and are unable to make sense of what was going on.

There is no shame in not knowing what to do or say when you encounter DEI conflicts. A high number of people fall within the conflict avoider’s style profile for regular interpersonal conflicts, it is no wonder they panic in situations of DEI conflicts.

DEI conflicts can trigger identity issues from the past. Some clients report that it feels like they were back in high school. The same feelings of isolation, fear, panic, disbelief that you are facing this again, and the added pressure that it is now affecting your career and livelihood are all a part of the DEI conflict dynamics.

Imagine being a conflict-avoider who gets caught up in a DEI conflict at work or in your community. A similar challenge faces the conflict between competitors whose tendency is to fight for their rights. Learning to decode DEI conflicts will help you respond appropriately to the conflict at hand. There is a time to fight, a time for flight, and a time to sit at the table or play shuffle negotiation but you will only know which tool to use if you are able to decode the conflict at hand.

You would not show up to a tennis match with a hockey stick, in the same way, you need to understand that the right approach is necessary to respond to the myriad of DEI Conflicts you will encounter working and living in an increasingly diverse world.

Whatever conflict you’re facing or is about to come your way, I want you to be better prepared to address it. Let me train you on decoding DEI Conflicts this week at the free Masterclass I am hosting.
