A shocking statistic:

Did you know that in the U.S. we lose 5% of our gross national product due to conflict? Managers spend about 30% of their time managing conflict, employees spend approximately 2.8 hours per week addressing conflict, all amounting to a whopping $350 billion dollars per year. (CPP, Inc. “Workplace conflict and How Business can Harness it to Thrive,” 2008.) The same is true outside of the work world, only we quantify the loss in terms of strained relationships, unresolved grievances, and stress related health problems.

We spend too much of our valuable resources (time, money, health) gossiping, retaliating, planning defenses, etc. that instead could be turned into productive problem solving, collaboration and building healthy relationships.

The following River Logic Partners training, coaching and consulting services can help you do this. To arrange for a complimentary one-hour consultation, please contact Denise Blanc.

Excellent leaders are developed, not born and they possess the balance of strong technical expertise and emotional intelligence. Coaching is a process that can help talented leaders see and work through their blind spots to take their performance to the next level.

We support leaders to:

  • Create high trust collaborative teams
  • Manage reactivity
  • Address blind spots in their communication and leadership style
  • Prepare for critical conversations
  • Manage workplace conflict

Denise has a private coaching practice outside the workplace working with individuals, couples and groups around issues of communication and conflict. She offers practical approaches and skill building to help people learn to hold open, honest and civil conversations and start to build trusting relationships. She wants to start a listening revolution!

“If a person talks and no one listens, is that communication?”
