Women and Conflict: Is Harmony Normal?

Generally, nice girls don’t cause conflict. Conflict is not feminine. Women are supposed to be the peacemakers, both at the office and at home. Women are taught to be cooperative and play the role of peacemaker. Their job supposedly is to not rock the boat; men get that role. A woman’s world revolves around connection and relationships, and they place a premium on interdependence so high, in fact, that women tend to avoid and accommodate others in conflict situations. They often say “yes” when they want to say “no.” They go along to get along. They sacrifice what is important to them and don’t get their needs met. The myth many women live by is “Harmony is normal.” If harmony is normal, conflict is abnormal.

Do any of these themes resonate with you?

  • Taking care of others
  • Taking a back seat
  • Acting dumb
  • Being the power behind the throne
  • Suffering silently
  • Waiting to be saved
  • Playing nice
  • Being seen, not heard
  • Sacrificing yourself for others
  • Being a people pleaser
  • Not rocking the boat
  • Making peace

What People are saying about Audrey

I thought it was a great conference. I really liked that speakers were brought in from outside the company who could really make an impact and had relevant information to speak about and how to apply it to out lives. I absolutely loved Audrey Nelson's presentation (and breakout session) and could have listened to her all day. She was extremely impactful and very engaing in both presentations. I took so much away from what she was saying and plan to use in my day to day communication. I also picked up her book and plan to read it. I would love to see her come back to the national sales meeting as I think the males in the company could benefit from her presentation as well (or some variation of it). I would also like to hear other presentations from her as well.
