Mindfully Resolving Conflicts in the Workplace


Wednesday, March 2, 2022, 12:00pm to 1:00pm



There’s no way to avoid every conflict in the workplace—personality clashes and differences of opinion are inevitable, even if we’re working towards a common goal. But how do we stop disagreements from spiraling into larger disputes—the kind that produce rifts, instability, and disrupt the ability to get work done? Mindfulness teaches us to grasp the thoughts, feelings, and impulses which influence every interaction—thereby offering an essential tool to build more effective channels of communication; identify the true source of problems; and engage in problem-solving without coming away feeling drained and over-extended.

Prerequisites: Either you have attended an “Introduction to Mindfulness” workshop at Harvard; you have completed “The Basics” course on the Ten Percent Happier app (available for free to all benefits-eligible faculty and staff); or you have a well-established personal mindfulness practice.
