Conversational Riffs – creating meaning out of conflict

The cost of poorly managed conflict in organisations can be counted in four currencies – money, time, energy and reputation.

At the same time conflict is inevitable but conflict avoidance is not the answer. The challenge for business owners and leaders is to increase their conflict competencies so that they are able to step into the difficult conversations effectively.

Conversational Riffs provides a practical framework helping you recognise destructive conflict patterns and enabling you to choose from a new selection of responses that will dramatically transform dialogue with your suppliers, stakeholders, staff and clients.

Neil Denny is a family law partner with Chattertons Solicitors and is the author of Conversational Riffs; Creating Meaning out of Conflict and also the Collaborative Law Companion. He has spoken across the UK, Europe and North America helping other professionals develop their conflict leadership and resolution credentials and is recognised as an engaging and entertaining speaker.

In the words of one event organiser "Neil was so good we had to turn the lights off to get people to leave." (Richard Hill, Bath) or "Neil is a very eloquent speaker with an authoritative but approachable manner. He was one of the best-received speakers we have had at The Business Club" (Mike Stokes, Lincoln)
