War to Peace: being more effective with the people you find most difficult
Event on 2017-03-03 09:00:00
Why would I attend War to Peace? Participating in the War to Peace workshop offers you the possibility to transform your relationships and daily interactions with anyone you find difficult. It is a one-day intensive course that has been designed to be fun and engaging, whilst dealing with a very important topic. If you come along, you will experience new and easier ways to relate to others that many have reported as life-changing. If you don’t, it is likely you will continue trying everything you have already tried to make your relationships work and you will keep getting the same results as you always have. War to Peace workshops have been held in England, Finland, Canada, the US and the Middle East since 2009. More than 3500 participants have rated its effectiveness, with 100% saying they would recommend it. In 2010, War to Peace won an Innovation Award from Nokia Siemens Networks. Incidentally, you have nothing to lose with our wise investment guarantee that offers you a full refund if you are not satisfied* Who should attend? Anyone who wants to improve his or her relationships and ability to handle conflict, both at work and at home: Do you get on with everyone in life, except one person who drives you crazy – your boss, a family member, a colleague, a friend? Do you find yourself getting into arguments with someone or feeling disappointed or hurt by them? Maybe you try to avoid them altogether now or dread spending time with them? Perhaps you are already self-aware and would like a framework to help you improve your ability to avoid and manage conflict? War to Peace can help you. How will I benefit? In this intensive one-day workshop you will experience the whole War to Peace methodology and: Be able to recognise the early signs of conflict and choose a different course of action. Experience multiple ways of quickly changing how you feel emotionally, so that you can switch from an unresourceful emotional state to a resourceful one. Gain greater self-awareness and have a clear understanding of your personal style of conflict. Gain insight about the unconscious impact of your warring style and what it provokes and invites from others. Learn how to shift perspectives to see things from multiple viewpoints and experience ‘putting yourself in someone else’s shoes’. Know how to quickly focus on and control what’s controllable in a relationship to become more empowered. Experience appreciation for who you are. Join a network of people who understand the frameworks you will learn and can offer you support.

Alison Saunders CPCC, London, UK "You will be surprised, entertained, challenged and empowered. This is complicated stuff, brilliantly brought to life! You will be given the opportunity to be better at managing difficult situations at work and at home. I will remember this for a long time." Simon Middelboe, London"A life-changing workshop that supports you in seeing your own role in challenging relationships and gives you the tools to better influence people in a positive way." Cecilia Åkerman, Lund, Sweden"Absolutely superb means of examining challenging relationships in a supportive environment and realising how much I can do to improve the situation.” Melissa Mehta, Oxford“I am leaving with valuable tools and knowledge and have learnt how to put them into practice in a clear and memorable way. My thinking has been challenged.” Amanda Axbey, Oxford, UK “A natural sceptic, the course put me at ease to engage in the material. It was fun whilst also being considered and challenging.” Christopher Woolley, Bexley, UK“Brilliant interactive workshop providing a safe and creative environment to explore challenging relationships from the inside. It illuminates the real causes behind why some relationships are less than the best, provides clarity around what you can (and can’t) do about it and helps you to create a better future rather than keep your current situation or repeat your past.” Justin Collinge, Ashington, UK“Deep and illuminating work. It really showed me how I am creating my experience in the relationship and how I can create a different experience without the other person having to change”. Sonia Duggan, London, UK “I have attended every possible training course you can imagine in the past 50 years. What you showed me today is the most helpful thing I have ever experienced in dealing with conflict." John Cooke, Galena, Illinois, US “Normally I’m a very anti-self-help type of person, but as part of a personal development program at work, I was encouraged to attend ‘War to Peace’. Chloe's energy, warmth and insight open people up to the themes of the subject and bring us all a step beyond where we could have gone. I highly recommend working with Chloe any chance you get! Even if you think you have your mind around something, I bet she can turn on a few new lights.” Zach Zimet, North Carolina, US“I remember walking into the room and thinking ‘What does this young woman think she can teach me?’ As it happens, she taught me a lot. I can honestly say this is the best course I have experienced in 25 years.” Klinton Williams, Dallas, Texas, US ”The War to Peace workshop was a real personal help for me dealing with our site closing and being made redundant.” George King, Boca Raton, Florida, US “I sense that this will be more helpful, in both my personal and professional life, than any course I have taken in the past.” Mikael Birgegard, Stockholm, Sweden Any Questions?

Refund policy Your ticket is not refundable and you cannot transfer to another event on a different day. This is beacuse we only have 12 spaces, we widely advertise how many places we have left and if this number increases, it can mean that people may question the integrity of our marketing. However, your ticket is transferable to someone else, so in the event you are no longer able to make the workshop, you may pass it on to someone else to attend in your place. Just let us know their name email address and telephone number so that we can ensure they receive the pre-course work and venue details. *Our wise investment guarantee If you attend War to Peace and don’t feel better equipped to deal with the people you find difficult we will willingly refund your money. We believe in what we do, we know it works and if it doesn’t work for you, we wouldn’t want you to pay us. We would simply ask that you attend the whole day and if you are not satisfied, just return any course materials and give us some feedback on how we could make it better for you next time.
