At the heart of Mastering Respectful Confrontation is the belief that it is possible to stand in your power, speak your truth, hear the truth of others, and get your needs met in a way that will harm neither you nor others.
For individuals in all walks of life, and for leaders in the workplace and in government, Joe Weston’s inspired teachings offer:
- A greater sense of power, personal freedom and vision
- Improved relationships and stronger influence in the workplace, at home and in the world
- New solutions to familiar problems
The combination of theory, dynamic exercises, somatic engagement, and martial arts principles result in a noticeable shift in behavior, deeper insight into yourself, and an ease with tackling challenging situations with integrity and understanding.
Respectful Confrontation is nothing more than openhearted engagement--ultimately, a very effective way to avoid and resolve conflict.
