In the world of business management, simplicity is key. In a recent podcast episode, Susan Clarke and CrisMarie Campbell discuss how simplicity can transform conflict and decision-making. They share their journey into Dr. Joe Dispenza's work, where meditation and self-reflection helped them find clarity. Swimming with dolphins became a metaphor for inner transformation. They emphasize the importance of vulnerability and curiosity in conflict resolution and offer insights on making conflict a catalyst for positive change.
Partners in work and life, CrisMarie and Susan have spent 20 years together helping individuals, leaders, and teams resolve difficult conflicts, and create strong, thriving relationships and profitable business results. They have been featured presenters on conflict resolution, communication, teamwork, stress, and diversity and inclusion at Fortune 100 companies like Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Google, AT&T and Nationwide, as well as, at organizations such as the Gates Foundation, University of Washington Medical Center, and San Francisco Giants and many others.
They are the authors of The Beauty of Conflict: Harnessing Your Team’s Competitive Advantage and The Beauty of Conflict for Couples. They also have a podcast with the same name: The Beauty of Conflict for dealing with conflict at work and at home. Their work and expertise have been featured in notable outlets like The Today Show, NBC, and Shape, The CEO Magazine, and Corporate Board Member.
CrisMarie learned growing up that the key to survival was avoiding conflict and instead, focused on achieving and pleasing authority. This became her superpower: taking her to the Olympics, succeeding as the only woman out of eighty Boeing Flight Test 777 engineers, getting her MBA, and becoming a Manager at Arthur Andersen.Susan actively champions the notion that the key to thriving through crisis, conflict, and change isn’t overcoming the problem – it’s living right smack in the mess of it and discovering the resources that lie within you. The gem lies in uncovering the knowing that you are not alone and that you were not, nor ever been, broken.
