Understanding Others and De-personalising Conflict

5 July 2016

The topic for our July 2016 event was a popular one: Understanding Others and De-personalising Conflict’ led by our very own co-leader, Marie Smith.

We had a fun and interactive session exploring the 3 primary approaches of individual’s to gain a feeling of self worth. We played with this information and how it can cause potential conflict.  We worked on personal strategies to ‘nip’ our conflicts ‘in the bud’.

What attendees thought:

Good to meet a diverse group of people and work together on real life issues”
“Very thought provoking”
“Well planned and facilitated, great pace, very informative and useful”

Marie Smith

My whole career has been focused on supporting people to be the best they can be benefiting not only themselves, but also the organisations they work for, or with, and their families and friends

During my thirty years in learning and development, leadership and coaching I have worked in and with private, public, higher education and not-for-profit sectors.  I feel very grateful and lucky to work with some amazing and inspirational people and organisations. I established my own leadership development and executive coaching business, SUCCESSMITH, in 2012. I continue to enjoy working with a variety of organisations and individuals to support and co-create transformational change.

My passion is supporting people to understand what success means to them and go for what they really want out of life. I specialise in coaching and facilitating the development of leaders in organisations, departments, and teams. I also work on a one-to-one basis with private individuals.

I particularly enjoy supporting all genders, and particularly women, to define and achieve their ‘life purpose’ by overcoming tangible or imagined obstacles.

I feel very privileged that through SUCCESSMITH and through my work with the Aspiring Women Groups, I am able to support others by ‘being the spark that lights the flame for transformational change’, and this is what makes me smile and gives me a reason to get out of bed in the mornings!
