February Dinner Meeting 2020

“Rediscovering Conflict”

Presented By: Kerry Bayles

ReDISCovering Conflict takes a new look at an old problem- conflict. In this keynote we explore conflict in a revolutionary way by using the lens of our personalities. Using the four personality styles represented by the Take Flight Learning birds, we will look at how personality styles play into conflict development, duration, and resolution. Participants will learn how to read interpersonal cues to better understand the styles of others, and they will gain deep insights into how to apply style wisdom to create positive outcomes during conflict.

This keynote will show conflict in a new light, as an opportunity for growth and creativity. By learning how to look at each developing situation through the eyes of Eagles, Parrots, Doves, and Owls participants will be able to see the roots of conflict forming much sooner, understand the triggers and de-escalators for each style, and be able to implement new tactics for employing successful conflict resolution.

The ReDISCovering Conflict Keynote will enable participants to:

  • Identify when style is as an underlying cause of conflict
  • Recognize why each style embraces or avoids conflict
  • Use style to reduce the number of conflicts that escalate
  • Implement strategies to manage conflict tactics used by each style
  • Flex their style to bridge to others during conflict
  • Shift from placing the blame to fixing the problem
  • Turn conflict into a constructive force
