Negotiating Conflict with Emotional Intelligence

Research continues to show that not only is emotional intelligence (EI) a greater predictor of success than intellectual intelligence (IQ,) it also leads to a happier, healthier life. While emotions can contribute to challenges, with EI, they become resources to fuel collaboration,resolve conflict and enhance relationships. The best part is, EI is learnable!
This workshop will combine an interactive presentation with an individual and peer to peer activity. Participants will have the opportunity to view a conflict situation through the lens of Emotional Intelligence and work with a partner to give and receive feedback.


After 15 years in corporate HR, Melanie was frustrated by check box exercises and the slow pace of change. In 2018 she left her FT job and started People Minded. Now she utilizes her innate ability to see the potential in others and extract their best, to help startups and small businesses hire the right people and maximize their individual potential. Through her partnership with Six Seconds, Melanie utilizes a variety of Emotional Intelligence based tools and assessments, to build bridges for discussing people performance and workplace dynamics in simple, human language. As the Co-Founder of DisruptHR in Rochester, NY, Melanie strives to inspire new ways of addressing persistent challenges in organizations and the community. Melanie holds a Bachelor’s degree in Management from St. John Fisher College, a Change Leadership certificate from Cornell University and is a Certified Emotional Intelligence Assessor and Practitioner.
