Event Description: 

In 1999, Cinnie Noble, a pioneer of the specialty known as Conflict Management Coaching, founded the CINERGY® model which is based on conflict management, coaching and neuroscience principles. Cinnie did extensive research, at the time, in her efforts to develop a framework that specifically focuses on clients who want to effectively manage and engage in their interpersonal disputes and to strengthen their conflict intelligence.

In this presentation, Cinnie will define conflict and related principles. She will discuss what conflict management coaching is including its applications and the clients who benefit from a specific model devoted to inter-relational challenges in their personal or professional lives. Cinnie will share her research process and findings including what distinguishes coaching people in conflict from clients with unrelated goals. To Cinnie’s surprise, some of the results of her research challenged several skills which our field considers core competencies but, are not always well-received by people in conflict. She will discuss these findings with us and invite our input and experiences with clients in conflict.
