TGM Classic | Christina Harbridge | How to Shed Irrational Behavior and Tips for Handling Conflict

In today’s show, you will learn how “coordinating” rather than “collaborating” can help employees live up to their innate abilities. Other topics discussed in today’s show include tips for dealing with complex emotions and the importance of recognizing and disregarding feedback that originates from fragility.

In this episode, Christina and I talked about:

  • Sitting with discomfort and allowing the feeling 
  • How to recognize and deal with complex emotions 
  • Getting out of your head during a conflict 
  • How seamless communication leads to solid organizational core values 
  • And other topics…

Meet Christina:

Christina Harbridge is a behaviorist who trains and coaches individuals, teams and large groups to understand and leverage their own personal operating system. Her early experience as founder and CEO of a debt collection agency that collected debt through unorthodox tactics (such as being nice) shaped her worldview on workplace communication. Employees focused their interactions on filling a person’s need to feel understood through emotionally literate tactics, rather than focusing on trying to collect a debt that may not even have been owed. The proof was in the wedding invitations.
