I was delighted to be joined on the A Better HR Business show by Jeremy Pollack, Ph.D., CEO of Pollack Peacebuilding Systems, and Founder of Peaceful Leaders Academy.
Jeremy is a social psychologist focusing on peace and conflict psychology. As a researcher, he studies cognitive, behavioral, and cultural patterns that tend to lead people into conflicts or into peace. He also studies how leaders play a role in creating systems of peace or conflict. He is further interested in the neuropsychological components of threat and fear and how acute stress responses (fight-flight) impact people’s capacities for optimal functioning, especially in social environments.
Pollack Peacebuilding Systems provides workplace conflict transformation services, including conflict analysis, peacebuilding interventions, coaching, training, and various other methodologies to help create more peaceful and productive organizational cultures.
“What we do is mitigate those risks, increase efficiency, and decrease the stress. We do this by teaching leaders and employees how to communicate more effectively and rebuild mutual trust, through coaching, training, and conflict resolution services that we call peacemaking. In fact, we’ve helped dozens of companies, large and small, in all varieties of industries around the world, resolve conflicts and foster greater peace. Pollack Peacebuilding Systems is not your average conflict resolution consulting firm. We are a complete 360-degree peace generator empowering organizations toward positive change through transformative peace processes.“
In a wide-ranging discussion, Jeremy and I talked about:
- The most common and the most difficult workplace conflict situations that Pollack Peacebuilding typically deals with
- The different approaches, techniques, and tools used for conflict resolution
- What Pollack Peacebuilding is doing and whom does it help?
- How to measure the business benefit?
- Training and certifications for teams and companies
- And much more!
