Conflict is a normal part of any healthy relationship and arises from differences, both large and small. Everyone needs to feel understood, nurtured, and supported, but the ways in which these needs are met vary widely.
Differing needs for feeling comfortable and safe create some of the most severe challenges in our personal and professional relationships. Learning how to deal with conflict – rather than avoiding it – is crucial.
When conflict is mismanaged, it can cause great harm to a relationship, but when handled in a respectful, positive way, conflict provides an opportunity to strengthen the bond between two people.
This activity will help you see your conflict management style from a new perspective. The insights you gain depend on your honest appraisal of the conflict management inventory.
The link below takes you to seven TEDTALKS that are sure to provoke thought for coaches.
They are divided up into a week of TEDTALKS for Curious Coaches.
The Co-Founder of TPI, Dave Phillips, once said that he made a habit of watching one TEDTALK on his iPad every night before bed. We encourage you to do the same thing this week.
Watch each of the videos with your ‘coach’s hat’ on, or perhaps just your ‘golfer’s hat’.
You’ll see that each speaker’s message contains innovative concepts to be applied to any form of performance and education.

Emotional intelligence – the ability to recognise and understand manage ourselves and our relationships effectively – consists of four fundamental capabilities: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and social skill.
Each capability, in turn, is composed of specific sets of competencies.
Below is a list of the capabilities and their corresponding traits.
- Emotional self-awareness: the ability to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance, relationships and the like.
- Accurate self-assessment: a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations.
- Self-confidence: a strong and positive sense of self-worth.
