Growing through Conflict

Conflict coaching and caring for oneself

• conflict coaching based on philosophical reflection
• the concept of caring for yourself linked to the practice of conflict coaching for the first time


Conflict coaching always takes place in that tension between professionalism and intuition, between technology and encounter. Both are important, but in most cases, conflict coaching, as a structured process and clearly defined techniques for communication, is given more weight than caring for yourself. However, it is just that which you need in order to be able to meet and listen to the other person during moments when emotions are running high.

The book makes an interdisciplinary contribution to the theoretical foundation of conflict coaching, which is, at the same time, always relevant in practice. It relates to various self-care philosophies, psychological implications of self-cultivation and neurophysiological findings. Based on the insight that conflicts always represent opportunities, are perceived differently in different cultures and are embedded in the narrative processes, the book presents its own conflict coaching model: P.A.C.E.
