Leveraging Conflict to Transform Organizations
Guiding organizations in transforming conflict through introspection, reflection, and exploration to courageously and constructively address conflict.
Solh Resolutions International’s variety of conflict transformation services provide a supportive environment for individuals and groups seeking expanded self-awareness in how they show up in and navigate conflict, a topic traditionally associated with high-stress and avoidance. Each service offers a unique opportunity to slow down and reconsider the way that conflict is typically experienced, which is often as a flashpoint at the intersection of emotion and reaction. As a result of this more mindful exploration, we emerge as more effective leaders and individuals with improved confidence and competence in how to courageously and constructively address conflict.
"Just at least consider that the place where you are wrong might be the most fertile ground for connecting with and receiving others. And in a beautiful twist, being soft in your rightness, as opposed to smashing people with your brilliance, can open others up to whatever wisdom you’ve accumulated."

Using the CINERGY® Model for Conflict Management Coaching, participants engage in a one-on-one process where they work with a specially trained coach to improve the way they manage and engage in their interpersonal workplace conﬂicts and disputes. Through exploring all sides of the conflict, this approach invites participants to:
Journey toward more mindfully assessing and understanding their conflict with the benefit, support, and guidance of a coach
Empower the participant to tap into their own wisdom and expertise in identifying a solution
Conﬂict coaching is distinct from therapy or counseling in that it is highly goal-oriented, future-oriented, and action-oriented.
Conflict Consciousness Workshop Series
Each installment of the Conflict Consciousness Workshop Series builds on the previous part to guide participants through new, deepened levels of awareness and understanding of the ways that we show up in conflict. Participants attending this series do not need to be from the same organization; however, organizations can opt to have one or more parts of the series held exclusively for their staff.
Part I | Becoming Conscious: Only when we can both openly engage the “other” in the conflict as well as connect fully to our own conflict narrative, can we begin to know how a conflict is truly impacting us, what is at the root, and what needs to shift in order to move forward. Our richer understanding of these narratives helps us heal from past trauma, strive for understanding over agreement, and gain access to our flexible minds as we approach the conflict with a renewed lens. To this end, Part I of the workshop series will pull on participants’ experiences to discover their conflict story, explore how their conflict story has come to inform their core beliefs about conflict, and identify how these core beliefs inform the way they approach conflict personally and professionally. With this newfound understanding, participants can then begin to consider how a new outcome to old conflicts can be possible.
Part II | Applying Awareness: In Part II of the Conflict Consciousness Workshop Series, participants are guided in aligning their enhanced awareness with skills and tools to support them in constructively engaging in conflict while making meaningful shifts in their current conflict behaviors. Participants increase their capacity to compassionately engage with others through conflict by learning about the essential role of empathy in addition to working with an analysis-for-awareness tool derived from the CINERGY© Model for Conflict Management.
Part III | Harnessing Mastery: In Part III of the Conflict Consciousness Workshop Series, participants harness their evolved consciousness into building their skills around conscious communication and learn to employ the power of words to purposefully align intentions, actions and impact related to conflict. Participants also develop practices that build their capacity to sustain their commitment to being conflict conscious, in addition to designing self-care rituals that that can effectively support them in the long-term as they journey toward mastery.
