"It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone"

On Wednesday morning, we welcomed coach and management consultant André Buschbeck to our location in Wetzlar. As part of a management meeting, he led a valuable workshop on the topic of conflict resolution. The workshop offered our managers tips and inspiration on how to deal well with conflicts and in conflict discussions.

Over the course of the morning, the participants discussed various key questions: What is a conflict? When can a conflict also be positive? How do I deal with conflicts personally and in my day-to-day work? What strategies can be used to deal with conflicts?

Tobias Eckhardt from Quality Assurance found the workshop very exciting: "We first summarised where conflicts can arise, such as in professional decisions or different ideas about procedures. It was interesting to observe that our corporate culture is strongly orientated towards maintaining harmony. However, it takes courage to step out of our comfort zone and tackle problems."

He took away many new impressions from the workshop: "It was particularly valuable to realise that conflicts can also have positive effects by identifying and resolving grievances in order to shape a better future. Conflicts are part of working relationships and are normal."

We would like to thank André Buschbeck for this inspiring and instructive workshop.
