Making peace with conflict.
Compassionate Accountability®

“Compassion energizes us to co-create. Compassion
doesn’t mean letting someone off the hook, feeling sorry
for them, or loving them into good behavior. Compassion balances caring, concern, empathy, and transparency
with boundaries, goals, aspirations, and standards.”

Dr. Nate Regier, Conflict Without Casualties.

Leading Out of Drama Cycle

Leading Out of Drama® (LOD) provides groups and individuals with easy to apply tools and a common language for navigating conflict without energy zapping drama. When the energy of conflict is used in creative ways we can harness that energy into productive relationships and solutions.

Learn how to approach conflict with compassion and experience the benefits of effective communication with leadership training programs designed for you.

"Before discovering Next-Element's Leading Out of Drama®, I was inconsistent in the way I approached conflict. Shifting my view of conflict has given me a new perspective. I realize conflict is a necessary part of life because without it there would be no change. We have a choice to either use the energy of conflict to create drama and negativity or we can allow the energy of conflict to help us grow.
