John Radford, Co-Owner, Transpectives Inc. and the 2019 Winner of Canada’s Trusted Advisor Award for CEOs and Owners of Family Businesses, shares a concrete tool that CEOs can use when they are stressed and overwhelmed, to help show up as your best self rather than reacting in a triggered state.

Relationships Alive Podcast

Featured Guest: Viola Neufeld

With Niel Sattin

Conflict in relationship is often viewed as a bad thing. It’s uncomfortable. It’s tense. It makes us feel bad, and often makes our partners feel bad too. But what if you’re missing out on an opportunity? Like two tectonic plates rubbing against each other, two people butting heads in relationship might be just the moment where something new forms within that relationship. And within you. That’s the view of this week’s guest, Viola Neufeld.

Our Clients

I have had the privilege of experiencing the work of each of John Radford and Vi Neufeld in a variety of settings including mediations, reconciliation sessions, team building, counselling and more. These two professionals make a great team. John’s calm and steady demeanor allows him to enter into and defuse high conflict situations with grace and efficacy. He brings a wealth of experience and much creativity to his work. Vi is an energetic, courageous and very resourceful facilitator who can help parties open up internal challenges and work through them with lasting effect. I would recommend both John and Vi, individually and collectively, for conflict resolution, team building and leadership development work.

John and Vi have been instrumental in assisting me with a momentous shift toward a growth and succession plan for my business. Several years ago I approached John and Vi to help me identify and align my company strategy with my personal goals and vision. At the time I was undergoing issues with effective leadership and ways in which to handle conflict and strategic management planning. Together they each contributed insights and guidance in equipping me with the tools to lead with a consistent, authentic and empathetic approach. Read more.

The New Book By Viola Neufeld

Grateful For The Fight

Using inner conflict to transform yourself and your relationships

By Viola Neufeld

“Don’t waste your conflict.”

Grateful for the Fight goes beyond resolving conflict to using conflict to transform lives. Neufeld cautions that the urgency in today’s society to resolve conflict might be a sophisticated way of bypassing the true value of conflict. If we let it, conflict can be our ally—an unusual window into the self. By investigating our fears and releasing them, we stand to make a true and lasting change that will improve our daily lives and every one of our relationships. Read more.
