That's how I felt last Friday night when I met Liz Strauss & Tammy Lenski at a conference in Chicago. Two intelligent and caring women that really "get it."
A week later, I'm not surprised to find some really great, timely info from the two of them:
Tammy: What advice would you give women about engaging conflict effectively in a corporate setting?
Liz: Someone recently asked me what I wish I knew when I first started working I said this: It doesn’t matter how good you are, if no one wants to work with you. For conflict situations I would add that the second you feel righteous, you are wrong in some very big way. If you can only see the problem and not the other person, you need to find someone who can help you see more.
This is quoted directly from a published interview of Liz Strauss, an educational publisher who is a writer, career coach and strategic planner from Chicago, conducted by Dr. Tammy Lenski, a professional mediator from New Hampshire.
