#090 – Bridging the Divide: How to Heal a Divided Nation with Frederick T. Golder

Workplace communication can often give rise to conflict as people intensely share and defend different opinions on topics they are passionate about. When not addressed effectively, these differences of opinion can start to affect how we treat one another.

How do we find common ground so we can start moving towards one another instead of dividing further?

On this episode of The Workplace Communication Podcast, we’re talking with Attorney Frederick T. Golder about bridging the divide by proactively identifying common sources of conflict and then using Frederick’s simple, constructive strategies.

Leadership tips you won’t want to miss:

🎙️ The three primary traps that people fall into that tend to worsen conflict

🎙️ The five elements used to resolve conflict and solve problems for good

🎙️ Practising mindful conflict resolution in workplace communication

🎙️ The importance of value and respect in the workplace

Attorney Frederick T. Golder has over 30 years of experience teaching and practicing conflict resolution. Attorney Golder has appeared on national radio and television and has written extensively in this field, including Reaching Common Ground: A Comprehensive Guide to Conflict Resolution (Luminare Press); Uncivil Rights: A Guide to Workers’ Rights, 2nd Ed.
