I’m somewhat unconventional.
I actually believe that conflict is a good thing. And I believe that effective conflict resolution is the best skill set we can teach to our children. Knowing ourselves, investing in our strengths, and understanding our weaknesses is the best investment we will ever make.
I went to the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) to better understand myself and to better understand conflict and mediation. If only the courses taught there were taught everywhere in the world.
I’m also a Change Agent. I didn’t know that until I received my MA in Leadership from Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. I did my thesis on The Impact of Kindness in the Workplace. If only.
And speaking of different lenses, some people see that as bossiness while others see leadership. Some people see Visionary, others Shit Disturber.
It brings new meaning to Change Agent.
