One of my busy days last week was devoted to a workshop on Managing Conflict. We enjoyed many great conversations and as usual, there wasn't enough time available to resolve every conflict. Some we'll just need to learn to manage.
Universally expressed was a dislike of drama at work. That is both expected, and odd for me to consider. There its SO much drama at work.
We're drawn to drama. We create drama. We thrive on the adrenaline rush of drama even as it depletes and wears us down.
Hey, we can relax. We can breathe. We can pause.
Even though we are drawn to drama it usually tears us apart. What if instead we found ways to tie ourselves together? What if instead of drama, we found a positive connection?
Seems worth trying...
