One of the best ways of influencing people to be less in conflict and more in collaboration in the workplace is to understand how the brain behaves on conflict. With her approach that’s part art part science, Suzanne brings insights and strategies for successful outcomes with those she calls being ‘high on conflict’.

Suzanne is not a neuroscientist but brings knowledge from neuroscientists and applies them to the practice of conflict resolution in the workplace.

The more we know about the neuroscience of conflict, the better we’ll be at shifting people into listening to each other and being open to agreements.
