Ignore the words, Listen to the emotions!
Whether it’s a child or an inmate serving a life sentence, these skills help calm volatile, difficult people in literally seconds. We are 98% emotional and only 2% rational. Yet we spend 98% of our time learning to be rational and less than 2% of our time learning to be emotionally competent.

How do you handle people who think differently than you?
What to do when they lose their temper. Or perhaps you lose your temper.

How to work with children from 2 -20.

Mastering and practicing these de-escalation skills will:

*Minimize arguments
*Increase understanding and empathy
*Transform important relationships
*Allow people to be heard in a profoundly deep way
*Create a new space for civility
*Provide a mechanism for talking about hard issues between people with radically different beliefs

Doug Noll speaks about and teaches people how to solve difficult, intractable, and highly emotional problems. He  was a business and commercial trial lawyer for 22 years before turning to leadership development, problem-solving, and peacemaking.

Along with his colleague Laurel Kaufer, Doug created The Prison of Peace Project.
