3-Hours with Dr. Kathy Obear

"We thought we were better prepared."

Even organizations with the very best laid-out plans experience conflict. I'll show you how to de-escalate triggering situations in the moment.

You've seen it happen many times: a seemingly minor disagreement blows up into a major conflict.

The result? Plummeting productivity, damaged relationships...and a host of other negative consequences. What to do?

This 3 hour LIVE Virtual Institute is designed to help you learn how to navigate difficult, triggering situations more effectively. We’ll cover how to:

  • Effectively engage each other during triggering moments.
  • Cultivate a stronger understanding of personal hot buttons for individual members.
  • Build team relationships by discussing common triggers in the workplace.
  • Develop more proactive strategies to successfully navigate triggering situations.
  • …and much more!

This is an excellent opportunity to gain the tools, resources and frameworks your organization needs to de-escalate those difficult workplace situations BEFORE they spiral out of control and undermine productivity, erode relationships, and decrease morale. 

Here's What Others Are Saying...

“Kathy’s sessions are engaging, interactive and nonthreatening. She creates a brave space where people can honestly engage and learn from each other’ stories and experiences.”

Renee Pusey

“My awareness of Microaggressions has leaped from “What is it?” to “Aware & Able to Identify”. Dr. Obear used great personal examples which demonstrated how we all can benefit from a self examination on this topic.”

Deanne W. Hurley

VP for Enrollment Management + Student Affairs
Ursuline College

“Doing work around inclusion and equity is hard. Dr. Obear uses humor and story telling to help people to understand. Everyone comes into professional development at different levels and she does an excellent job at not shaming or blaming but trying to help others have self-awareness and an appreciation for others.”
