Higher Ground is committed to improving your skills in preventing and managing conflict. Most of us are hesitant to address conflict directly. Conflict is scary for most people. The result is that conflict goes underground and often we only see the symptoms, until it breaks through often with the speed and unpredictability of an earthquake.
