Today’s podcast is a redux of our interview with Rosemary Losser, conflict management specialist. With the holiday season in full swing, conflicts within families are often heightened. We bring you this re-broadcast of Rosemary’s interview as our Christmas gift to you. We wish you holiday gatherings where conflict isn’t a dirty word, but an invitation to grow into more of who God created each person to become.
The Bold and Courageous Leader podcast team; Andee Marks, Dean Heid, Jill Lammi and I, all wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Rosemary Losser shares her journey as a Bold and Courageous Leader from a lack of confidence to living out the message she is called to share with the world. Rosemary is an expert in conflict resolution. She has a Master’s Degree in Leadership and Personal Development, as well as graduate certification in Conflict Resolution and Peacemaking from Duquesne University. Along with these credentials, she has a Life Coaching Certificate in coaching Work Teams from the Professional Christian Coaching Institute.
She has become the “go to” person to mediate conflicts and present training programs on communication and conflict resolution. She created comprehensive Leadership Development, Communication and Conflict Resolution Program to help leaders create a workplace where open, honest, and cooperative relationships are valued, and productivity is maintained. Her signature program is Productivity through Peaceful Relationships. She provides one-on-one and group coaching, as well as on-site training. Coming soon are online courses and webinars.
She shares her expertise with us in this podcast – teaching us valuable tips about conflict, perspective, and relationship building along the way. She’s generously provided us with her LIFE poem, an acronym to help us remember the steps to conflict resolution.
Gems from the Interview:
“Life is all about conflict, solving one conflict after another. That’s how we develop.”
“Conflict is normal and a sign of growth.”
“The strongest quality of a leader is being a listener.”
“It doesn’t have to be my way or your way, but let’s create a way.”
The LIFE acronym is the foundation of Rosemary’s conflict resolution process. She’s created a poem with it. Click here to download it.
