Conflict is everywhere. It’s in the competing desires and ideas within a team. It’s in the complex dilemmas held by individuals.
Sometimes, a conflict starts in a very personal place. Sometimes it’s driven by the strategic direction within an organisation. Sometimes it stems from the operational realities of a business, as competing processes run concurrently but not in sync.
Turmeric brings people ways to understand and confront conflict, transforming it into empowering choices.
For an organisation, this allows strategic priorities to take shape and informed, considered decisions to be made. As a result, conflict is no longer an impassable obstacle – it’s a dynamic, exciting opportunity for personal and professional growth.
A bespoke approach built around
How does your business context create implicit conflict? Where do the objectives of different processes and functions work against each other and why?
We’ll bring our technical expertise to look at every function, team, and individual in a practical context, and consider the commercial and organisational factors that may generate and perpetuate conflict.
How can leadership support teams and individuals through inevitable conflict? How can management play an effective role in finding a resolution?
We’ll draw on relevant management theory to provide the tools for confronting conflict, and create a framework to address it in a way that minimises compromise.
How can people confront their own dilemmas? How can in-the-moment conflict be formalised and worked through constructively?
We’ll guide people to the root of their conflicts, help them discover core issues, and support them through making difficult decisions.
Client case study
Unravelling personal and professional conflict
When a high-profile investment officer within a financial services organisation faced challenges in reconciling personal and professional pressures, Turmeric provided a space for reflection and resolution through a series of one-to-one coaching sessions.
This series of conversations provided empathetic listening, targeted thinking support and emotional perspective. The process guided this senior leader in uncovering personal values, priorities and decisions in the context of complex professional and personal circumstances.
Turmeric helped by:
- Providing uniquely intimate but safe conditions designed specifically for the sensitivity of the content involved
- Bringing cross-cultural expertise to help the client reframe mind-set and feelings around what is in or outside the client’s control
- Leveraging technical business and organisational understanding to make sense of the political context within her organisation
- Challenging inaction and offering support to build resilience around progressing towards considered decisions and resolution
For our client, this led to a profound process of personal transformation including major life decisions. As a result, our client was able to dissect her life map and achieve real clarity – enabling action with a heightened sense of control.
