CTS believes that the ability to resolve conflict more consciously, constructively, creatively, and compassionately, in both our professional and personal lives, begins with the ability to manage ourself – our defensiveness, our reactivity, our fears.
At the same time, we recognize that we're all wired to be creatures of habit including habits of thought, emotional reactivity, and behavior. And most of us have never had the opportunity to examine the habits that get us into, keep us in, and help us get out of conflict.
