What is Compassionate Accountability?

Compassion without accountability gets you nowhere. Accountability without compassion gets you alienated. Blending the two is the essence of leadership. Join us to examine four myths about compassion that hold us back, and re-imagine a fuller definition and practice of compassion that can transform relationships, teams and cultures.

Unpacking Workplace Drama: There's a Method To The Madness

Workplace drama costs companies billions every year in lost productivity and engagement, absenteeism, mental health problems, and damage to your brand. Drama is more than backstabbing, gossip, and passive-aggressive behavior, though. Drama can be diagnosed, predicted, and understood in order to get a better handle on it. Join us for a review of Dr. Stephen Karpman’s Drama Triangle, one of the most elegant models for understanding negative conflict within teams and systems. Next Element is one of only two organizations worldwide who are authorized by Dr. Karpman to teach The Drama Triangle.

Understanding the Positive Potential in Conflict

Conflict is often destructive, but it doesn’t have to be. Strategies that attempt to reduce, manage, or mediate conflict miss out on its positive purpose. Next Element has pioneered a communication methodology for harnessing the positive potential in conflict, called Leading Out of Drama. In this workshop you will learn the difference between positive and negative conflict, challenge four common myths about conflict, and distinguish between conflict styles and conflict skills.
