Conflict Without Casualties
When people misuse conflict energy, it becomes drama: they struggle against themselves or each other to feel justified about their negative behavior. The cost is staggering.
Drama costs the US workforce over $350 billion per year in lost productivity, absenteeism, passive-aggressive behavior, and wasted energy. Drama-based organizations and relationships operate at a fraction of their capacity. In a global relationship-based economy, we can’t afford to misuse energy in this way!
Dr. Nate Regier, co-founder and CEO of Next Element, discovered a surprising alternative. Cultures that develop Compassionate Accountability can transform conflict into positive change, leveraging its energy to create rather than destroy and realizing tremendous new potential. Conflict Without Casualties, published 2 years ago this week, outlines the ways these concepts are influencing people around the world.
Listen in as Nate Regier and Becky Robinson discuss the Compassion Cycle, an elegant model for balancing empathy, care, and transparency with boundaries, goals, and standards. Learn how to detect and decode drama in yourself and others, three core competencies for compassionate accountability, and the formula for compassionate conflict.
