A high conflict divorce is never a good thing and is typically ramped up by the personalities involved. During this type of divorce, a war is created that is costly and damaging to the children and the divorcing couples. In this program Dr. Larry Friedberg explains the differences between the friendly divorce, the business-like divorce and the high conflict divorce. You will also gain insight into why couples go this path and learn how a partner with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder adds fuel to the fire in a high conflict situation. Finally, we have some suggestions to circumvent this path that can save you and your family a lot of grief. www.DivorceSourceRadio.com

The opportunities that have opened up for him as a result of his divorce experience are something he never expected.

The Tiger Approach: Contesting
The Fox Approach: Compromise
The Owl Approach: Collaboration
The Teddy Bear Approach: Accommodating

January is widely referred to as "Divorce Month" in legal circles. (That's right: smack in the middle of the "Engagement Season" that runs from Thanksgiving through Valentine's Day!) This edition of Grown Zone Radio explains why investing in marriage readiness now can prevent the financial and emotional devastation of bad marriages and divorce in the future. A commitment to marriage readiness requires you to always be mindful of three things:
The high cost of marrying recklessly. More than $100,000 plus your happiness, security—and even your life—is at risk.
Who are you marrying? Is this person qualified to love you with H.E.R. (Honor, Esteem and Respect)?
Why are you marrying? There is only one Grown, healthy reason.
Marriages end in divorce not because the institution itself is flawed, but because too few are prepared and qualified for it. Divorce prevention is not about staying married at any cost, but refusing to marry without real training and preparation.
You--and likely others you know—really need to tune in to this edition of Grown Zone Radio. Join us to learn why our book Loving In The Grown Zone is not your typical relationship book about finding someone to marry, but about making healthy choices to attract the love you were created for.

CONFLICT…either you hate it and avoid it at all costs, or you thrive on it by pushing to get your point across to the detriment of others. How we recognize potential conflict or respond to ongoing conflict is a choice. It is a learned skill that challenges your thinking, taps into your emotions, and requires you to make strategic behavioral choices. These choices help build courage, confidence and competence to handle difficult, tension-filled situations.
What is conflict avoidance, and how can it create unintended damage to relationships and escalate situations? More often than not, it is used as a default defense mechanism which often leads to a much bigger problem. You will learn behavioral cues and underlying motivating factors that drive us to react in damaging ways. More importantly, you can make different choices and learn strategies to help you take courageous steps to address conflict confidently.

We continue our Dispute Resolution –Cyber Style series with David Puckett, Founder and CEO of ResolvNow. It is quite normal for conflict to occur between businesses, consumers and the ordinary person. Most of us don’t have the time, energy or desire to use the court system and enter a lawsuit. So how do we give the consumer and business easier access to resolving their dispute with technology-enhanced dispute resolution? How do we unite conflict resolution practices like negotiation and mediation with various forms of technology? Consumers are often unclear and confused about how dispute resolution processes can assist much less how advancing technology comes into play. In this episode “Where Does the Conflict Go? Consumers Using Technology Enhanced Dispute Resolution,” David will address 5 barriers which contribute to this confusion, and the ways to create consumer awareness and an environment that is safe for participation.
Dave Puckett has been in the enterprise technology consulting industry for more than 25 years. His area of concentration is utilization of Technology-enhanced Dispute Resolution and Dispute System Design for online dispute resolution systems for individual, Courts, and Fortune 1000 companies. Dave’s company ResolvNow Corporation launched “Settle-Now” one of the world’s leading online dispute resolution engine and their proprietary methodology Technology-enhanced Dispute Resolution (TeDR) which includes the option to include Emotional Intelligence and Electronic Negotiation in the dispute resolution processes.
Why do old, dysfunctional patterns for handling conflict re-emerge and persist in the workplace, even after providing training, policies or procedures for resolving differences constructively? This vexing phenomenon—a return to the status quo--plagues conflict professionals and team leaders alike. The main culprit is not individuals clashing; instead it is the team’s culture—the social environment—which sets communication patterns and strongly influences how members behave when they encounter conflict. But how do we get a handle on conflict at the work team level? First we need to concretely assess a team’s “conflict climate” and then take steps to improve aspects of the climate that are negatively influencing members’ conflict behavior. In this program Michael Dues will discuss a powerful online instrument for diagnosing conflict climate in the workplace. He will describe what it measures, how it can guide interventions to gain long term, sustainable improvement in conflict management, and why it is especially useful to use an online survey for this purpose.
Michael Dues: Former Head of the Department of Communication at The University of Arizona, Dr. Dues has extensive experience as an organizational ombudsman and management consultant. He is a Senior Partner at conflictclimate.com. He pioneered the concept of “conflict climate.” His recorded lecture course, “The Art of Conflict Management,” (in The Teaching Company’s “Great Courses” series) has been widely distributed throughout the English-speaking world.
