Celebrating Creativity: Getting out of the Box, 2

“Every actor wants to break out of the box that they put you in and that’s where I’m heading, out of the box as fast as I can.”
Rick Springfield

Speaking of getting out of the box,

we also use that phrase for finding unique new solutions to places where we may be stuck. Think out of the box! Implying that being in the box is square and unimaginative.
But being in the box can also imply that you are cut off from others, that there may be barriers between you and the other(s). Maybe even conflict!

If your job, department, board or organization is plagued by conflict and you just don’t want to deal with it, maybe I can help you help you and your people through these communication barriers or grappling with conflict. The process of working through the real world situations you face can bring great insight and actually bring people to a better understanding and respect for each other. What seemed impossible can be turned around and become your greatest asset. Dealing with differences and embracing conflict can help you and your organization become more sustainable!

Also, check our my two favorite books which provide the frameworks for better leadership and less destructive conflict.
