Leading Out of Drama®

Lauren Schieffer-HeadshotBy: Lauren Schieffer, CSP

Amazingly, office workers spend more than two and one half hours per week trying to resolve conflict and drama, which translates into $359 billion in losses for U.S. companies every year.

Are you tired of the DRAMA? What if you could wrestle drama to the ground? Drama diverts time, energy and money away from team goals, strategic priorities and critical activities. Easy to sense, harder to diagnose and prevent, drama is what happens
when people struggle against themselves and each other, with or without awareness, to feel justified about their unhealthy behavior. Scientific research tells us that drama is predictable, observable and reversible.

This fun and insightful program shows you how to harness the energy naturally created by conflict away from drama and toward a more constructive and productive energy and a corporate culture of Compassionate Accountability®.

Presentation Objectives:

  • Learning Objective 1: Identify drama behaviors and how they impact strategic efforts while increasing self-awareness and personal responsibility for stopping drama.
  • Learning Objective 2: Enforce rules of engagement to ensure drama doesn’t sabotage forward movement, and engage in positive conflict around the most important issues.
  • Learning Objective 3: Facilitate innovation, goal-setting and rapid-cycle change and make decisions efficiently and with accountability.
