What Carol Barkes can say in an interview about Reconciliation:

The past year was fraught with anger, hostility, and dissension. How can we come together after a fight? Reconciling after an argument is largely a byproduct of a combination of techniques and skill development.  After mediating 1000’s of cases with disputing parties, Carol Barkes is certain about the following:

1)  There is no such thing as constructive criticism.  It is just criticism. Instead, try using a complaint that is focused on the problem rather than criticism of what the other person did.  This makes it less personal and puts the two parties on the same side of the table with the conflict on the other side.

Talking Points from Carol Barkes on what she can say in an interview
on 3 Ways on How to Avoid Awkward Conversations:

1) Listen more

People spend too much time thinking about themselves versus being present in the conversation. Conversations flow much better when one tries to cease thinking of what to say or how they will be perceived, and instead, focus on really hearing the other person. We tend to listen with a response in mind. We will be less anxious if we wait to truly hear the other person and formulate the next right thing to say based on what THEY said. Make it about them.

Leading Organizations Through a Pandemic

Available for Interviews: Roger Hall.

Dr. Roger Hall has a doctorate in Counseling Psychology, is an Executive Coach to entrepreneurs and leaders, and is an in-demand public speaker throughout North America.

 

Talking Points from Roger Hall 
on Leading Organizations Through a Pandemic:

  •      When people are uncertain what to do, they tend to look at the behavior of those around them for the correct response. When everyone else is freaking out, then they assume that freaking out is the correct response. “Everyone else is buying pallets of toilet paper. I guess I’ll buy a couple pallets too.” I’m not a big fan of Napoleon Bonaparte, but I do like his quote: “A leader is a dealer in hope.” There is no doubt that the Coronavirus pandemic is serious, but the fear of the pandemic is creating its own set of problems. In times of uncertainty, leaders can help their people have hope for a better future. Most anyone can handle a brief adversity, if they believe that there is a better future ahead.

What Carol Barkes can say in an interview about
Healing the Nation Based on Conflict Resolution Concepts
:
 

We have long had the thought that our capital and institution was safe from Americans but perhaps not from foreign entities. Today, we have found this not to be true and it makes us a perfect target for foreign enemies to sit back and watch us self-distrust from the inside out. This would make our forefathers roll over in their graves. We believe in the premise of United We Stand and yet we are now far from united. How can we make a better world as we fight against our brothers and sisters?

Some Talking Points from Carol Barkes Can Say in an Interview
on Dating After Divorce:

 

1)  Work to check your intrinsic biases. Roughly 98% of our thoughts are unconsciously driven and our brains are fairly lazy seeking to conserve energy. Our brains also look for patterns. Consequently, a new person in our lives may do something that makes our brain connect the dots back to something our ex’s did and we can have an inappropriate reaction. Instead, observe your thoughts and question why you are reacting the way you are. It may have nothing to do with your present relationship.

Talking Points from Carol Barkes on what she can say in an interview

Mediating conflict between virtual teams is largely about the brain and our natural tendency to go negative when we cannot connect all the dots. In other words, when we are not fully involved with other team members and something goes wrong, we typically find negative reasons for the occurrence.
