In this episode, Dr. Keri shares some simple tips on the best ways to avoid conflict (without feeling compelled to fire off passive-aggressive snarkisms later). If you want to learn how to get better at “peopling” without having to become a 24/7 extrovert, this one’s for you. 


Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • *ahem* AI IS NOT TAKING OVER THE WORLD (yet)! Can learning to evolve with the changing times keep you ahead of the curve? Dr. Keri and I dive into what’s possible when you let go of resistance and are willing to adapt… 
  • Truth BOMB: your “secret” weapon for mastering most AI tools is the same one you use to connect and collaborate with real, live humans. If you’re getting frustrating results as you dip your toe into this newfangled world of AI, you may want to keep this in mind… 
  • Struggling to connect without blowing a gasket? Dr. Keri breaks down why being an open book isn’t the career wrecker it might seem. And when done strategically, this skill can drastically improve your working (and even personal) relationships… 
  • Calling all conflict dodgers: STOP IT. I know we’ve been conditioned to avoid conflict at all costs, but Dr. Keri and I dive into why embracing (instead of ignoring) conflict will help you get shit done (and build stronger relationships too!)… 
  • Question: Who’s really getting schooled when you decide to “teach ‘em a lesson”? Hint: it’s you. You’re the one suffering, my friend.
