Welcome to Sheridan Resolutions Monthly Newsletter! Whilst some things haven’t changed, as we all continue to look at the same four walls in lock down, we have been extremely busy here at Sheridan Resolutions. We have a new look logo, as you can see above, which we think encapsulates the vibrancy and adaptability of our organisation, just like the hummingbird.
Our Global faculty have also been collaborating online, sharing best practice and continuing to deliver excellent support to our clients around the globe. We are now leveraging, more than ever, the technology that enables us to continue to maximise potential and transform business.
In this newsletter, we showcase just some of our services and the latest blogs, also more information and dates on our new ‘lunch and learn’ series. The first one is on the 13th May which you can book now HERE. We also have a video from one of our faculty members, Mark Mulligan, that provides some top tips on Thriving Through Corona – 5 tips to help you stay well.
(and we certainly hope you do! Stay safe and well…)

HOW TO AVOID CONFLICT IN THE WORKPLACE
According to research carried out by personality assessment consultancy OPP in conjunction with the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development, 85% of employees will have to deal with conflict in the workplace at some point. Even though we are now all currently working remotely, conflict can also happen virtually as we interact via phone calls, video conferences or email.
These disputes can involve disagreements with colleagues or with Line Managers. Being part of a dispute can create a tense working environment, de-motivation and therefore a decrease in productivity. If not resolved quickly and amicably, longer-term side effects include stress, lack of sleep, bad temperament and ultimately poorer health. So, is it possible to avoid workplace conflict entirely?
Coaches need to be able to develop their skills, just like anybody else. Whether a coach has a specific issue or a more general challenge, it is important to facilitate the development of skills, techniques and strategies and ensure high professional and ethical standards. It also supports the deepening of a coach’s own self-reflective ability to develop and improve. We bring extensive experience, knowledge of techniques and fresh perspectives for all levels of coaching. We provide a range of programmes to help coaches achieve, below are just a couple of examples:
Nudge coaching clinics
Supporting individuals with one-off coaching sessions of 50 minutes’ duration. Our coaches work on-site or virtually to deliver impact coaching sessions enabling more people to benefit and to access coaching on an as-needed basis
Coaching and Leadership Circles
We combine the power of mentoring with elements of coaching and action learning to inspire people to connect, share experiences and support learning.
HAVING MEANINGFUL CONVERSATIONS IN THE WORKPLACE
Effective communication results in minimising potential misunderstanding, creates unity as everyone is aligned or clear on the views or aims of another individual or company. An effective communicator understands their audience, chooses an appropriate communication channel, hones their message to this channel and encodes the message to reduce misunderstanding by the receiver(s). Overall, this results in improved employee and business relationships.
Choosing the right mode of communication, that is delivered in the right way is critical across an organisation, but arguably none more important than between a line manager and a direct report. These parties have an on-going relationship and one that is built on trust and respect, so therefore meaningful conversations are imperative.
