The Monthly NYC-DR Roundtable Breakfast:
Transforming Conflict from Within: Learning to Lead with Wisdom

Thursday, August 7, 2014
8:00 am - 10:00 am
Room 630T


Many conflict transformation initiatives acknowledge and engage three levels of human existence: cognition (thinking), affect (feeling), and behavior (acting). For many decades, the fields of conflict resolution and transformation have used these three levels to address conflict challenges in settings that range from organizational life to global strife.

Wisdom may be developed and cultivated using a practice called mindfulness. Mindfulness enables us to develop and cultivate new perspectives including complexity, interconnectedness, and courage, each of which assists us in transforming protracted conflict in our lives and communities. In this session, participants will be introduced to the foundations of wisdom-based conflict transformation. Beginning and advanced mindfulness practitioners are welcome and encouraged.

Dr. Jennifer Goldman-Wetzler is an organizational psychologist and founder of Alignment Strategies Group, a NYC-based firm that consults to senior leaders in a wide range of industries, including global corporate, non-profit and governmental organizations, on issues of conflict, negotiation and organizational change and renewal.  For more information, go to
