Leadership Principle:

ENTREPRENEURS AND MANAGERS IN THEIR ROLE AS CONFLICT MANAGERS

Leadership Workshop - systemic conflict management

Systemic conflict management: what are conflicts, exactly?

If your life is impacted by blows of fate, that is an unmistakeable sign of a systemic conflict. This principle applies to both your private life and your business. Systemic conflict management according to Anke Sommer doesn’t get bogged down in the problem; instead, it delivers insights that point to a way out of the conflict.

Your solution is not a half-baked compromise. It meets everyone’s interests on the basis of a common aim.
The overarching topic in this LEADERSHIP workshop is: internalising role-model work.

Work in systemic conflict management with Anke Sommer‘s Role-model Cards in order to:

  • avoid unknowingly becoming part of an old pattern
  • be able to live in the present and not continue, unknowingly, to share the burdened past of the people who have influenced your character
  • avoid continuing to unknowingly pass on potentially violent patterns to your children and your environment
  • avoid allowing negative processes in your environment to draw you into becoming part of violent processes by taking up negative role models yourself
  • be able to distance yourself from historically determined violence that is unconsciously passed on
  • grasp the impacts of personal and external negative role models and to manage them actively
  • also get to know and use the positive powers that counter the negative
  • use role model work as a management instrument, so strengthening positive role models
  • react automatically in a positive way to negative role models.

This Systemic Conflict ManagementConflict management means bringing an existing conflict under control and implementing measures that stem and remedy its consequences.... Read more LEADERSHIP Workshop is suitable for both beginners and advanced participants, because each participant works from their current position to find the solution necessary to them at that particular moment. In this workshop:

  • you gain a more conscious grasp of the fact that historical conflicts are still taking place now, but the cause behind them is much older
  • you also train the present reaction from your somatic core. You learn through the ‘recognise, feel, react, classify and automatically act’ principle.

What’s behind the Role-model Cards?

The SOMMER Method©2011 works with 22 role-model cards: 11 show positive information clusters and the other 11 show negative clusters. All the information clusters that have an active influence on your life are the result of violence in your (family) background that has not been worked through.

If you don’t identify these aspects, they lead into a conflict that actually has its place in the past, not in your present. In the workshop, you not only learn to deal with the conflict; you also understand the history behind it. In this way, you can perceive your part in it.

If you are aware of your part, you can reject it and, in future, you will no longer slip back into old ways of behaving that in themselves are nothing less than violent information clusters.

Historical conflict types that you can be made aware of through work with the role-model cards:

  • Historical conflict of male-female roles
  • Tormented conflict
  • Aggressive conflict
  • (Mortally) dangerous conflict
  • Self-destructive conflict
  • Highly inflammable conflict

Awareness development work results in the old information gradually dissolving. The unconsciously functioning conflict is no longer fed by your own participation.

Awareness development work results in the old information gradually dissolving. The unconsciously functioning conflict is no longer fed by your own participation.

In the Systemic Conflict Management LEADERSHIP Workshop, we work with the role models that belong to events in your past. In your subconscious mind, the ‘evil’ (destructive) side confronts the ‘good’ (beneficial) side. Your active work to develop your awareness changes the sequence. Once you become aware of the positive powers, they confront the negative factors and keep the latter away from you.

What lies behind the positive role models in the SOMMER Method©2011?

In the workshop, you experience in your physical reactions the effect of turning things around. The goal you are working towards is this: your body reacts to negative information and responds with the positive aspects of the beneficial role-model cards. To achieve this, you focus on your body’s reactions to the positive role models that are part of your past experience.

Another aim is that you learn to identify the active negative role models on the basis of your physical reactions, and automatically react by taking up the positive counter-powers.

We work with you to train you in this process.

In this way, you internalise how to deal with other people’s role models. In other words, you no longer need to actively read the signals; instead, your physical reaction shows you which role model is active around you. Your body itself helps you to take the next step by taking up the positive power. This internalised reaction is of great benefit in work contexts.

When you experience this in practice, you find the option to act that suits you best.

Another aspect of the workshop is to give participants a way of dealing with acute conflicts they’re experiencing.
