I have the honor to be on the Board of Directors and Lead Coach of Million Peacemakers, a non-profit organization with a mission to empower people to transform conflict into Nonflict and co-create a culture of peace in the world. 

"What is the meaning of CONFLICT - Two (or more) different perspectives in contact with each other. Neither positive nor negative, neither good nor bad. Nonflict shows us how conflict can be an opportunity to work together and co-create a future of greater peace! "

Conflict Costs in Business

An international study commissioned by CPP found that:

  • 85% of employees deal with conflict at work.

  • 25% of employees admit to calling in sick or leaving early to avoid conflict at work.

  • Employees spend an average of 2.8 hours a week in conflict costing $359 Billion in lost productivity in the U.S. alone, which is 7% of your payroll. 

  • Unresolved conflict at home directly affects employee’s productivity at work.​

 

The costs above do not include the money lost due to poor conflict resolution skills with external parties and relationships. In today’s global marketplace, diversity in background and cultures, without inclusion, creates conflict due to differing work and communication styles.

Impact of Conflict in Schools

 

Bullying (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016):

  • More than one out of every five (20.8%) students reports being bullied.

  • 33% of students who reported being bullied at school indicated that they were bullied at least once or twice a month during the school year.

  • The reasons for being bullied most often reported by students include physical appearance, race/ethnicity, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation.

  • Bullied students indicate that bullying has a negative effect on how they feel about themselves (19%), their relationships with friends and family, their school work (14%) and their physical health (9%).
