HI, I am Lisanne Iriks and I am deeply passionate about people having the ability to resolve conflict powerfully and negotiate effectively in their lives.   I am so passionate about it because I see how much suffering it is causing people on a daily basis and I know that it  just does not have to be this way.  When people truly get how conflict impacts their life and put the work in to get effective at conflict resolution and negotiation,  they get to experience deep connections with other people, freedom, self-expression, love, and happiness!
So what is it that I do? I am a conflict resolution specialist and have been a mediator and facilitator for over 12 years specialising in family mediation and workplace mediation.   I have taken thousands for people through the mediation process and I have had the honour to be a finalist for the  Australian Mediator of the year award for the last two years. I train, coach, and mentor people to become highly effective in conflict resolution and negotiation so they can create the relationships they want in their homes and their boardrooms. 
I am so excited to welcome you to CONVERSATIONS TO CUT THE CONFLICT! This podcast is designed to create actual change in people’s lives and the world. 
I am committed to bringing you the conversations, insight, and tools you need for you to switch on your inner conflict resolution and negotiation muscles and get you to a completely different level where you can resolve conflict powerfully and create the relationships you want in your life. Think about it...what would life be like if you would not be afraid of dealing with conflict and you would deal with it easily and quickly. It would change the game dramatically, wouldn't it?  
Thank you for being here and being willing to have these conversations and switch on your inner conflict resolution muscle. The world needs people like you! 
It would mean so much to me if you could share an episode with the people in your life. I put so much into these conversations and I would like these conversations to reach as many people as possible! Please tag me on Instagram when you share an episode so I can reshare your story. 
It is so great to meet you, now let's get into these conversations…

    Ep 39 - Overcome your Inner Conflict and Show Up with Confidence on Camera

    Ep 39 - Overcome your Inner Conflict and Show Up with Confidence on Camera

    This episode is for business owners who do not feel confident to show up on all the platforms commonly used  nowadays to generate business. Or if you are someone that feels that you do not need to show up on all the different platforms, then this episode is for you too.
    I interview Carmen Braidwood and she is absolutely amazing. She has years of experience showing up on TV and Radio and is now transferring these skills to the business world.
    Carmen is giving so many tips and tricks in this episode on how to show up on camera and have the ability to speak your truth and spread your message. To be able to do that, we all have to deal with our inner conflict AKA the voice in our head that tells us that we are not good enough and the worry of what others might think.

    Enjoy!

    Ep 38 - Emotions in Conflict- Debunking Myths and How to Work With It

    Ep 38 - Emotions in Conflict- Debunking Myths and How to Work With It

    Emotions are necessary and useful to have in our everyday life. We cannot survive without them. While emotions are so important, most people do not find it easy to talk about them, recognise them and work with (please note I said with, not against) them. A lot of people find this especially difficult when they find themselves in a conflict situation.
    In this episode I am debunking myths that surround emotions with Dr Sam Hardy based on her research. This new research is available to us but as a society we are still working with old myths that are not useful!
    I feel so lucky that Sam shared her wisdom and research with all you listeners in this episode. I feel everyone should listen to this episode! Sam's research will change what you think you know about emotions. I promise.
    I got a lot out of this conversation and I am sure you will too. What we discuss will apply to you on a personal level but also if you are a professional working in the conflict resolution space.

    Books Sam referred to during the  podcast:
    1. Lisa Feldman Barrett “How Emotions are Made”
    2. Susan David “Emotional Agility”
    3. Batja Mesquita “Between Us: How cultures create emotions”

    Ep 37 - Legacy, Death and Conflict

    Ep 37 - Legacy, Death and Conflict

    In this episode, I interview  Zinta Harris from Resolve Estate Law. Zinta is a succession lawyer, collaborative professional, and mediator who is amazing at helping people when they are in conflict while a loved one has just passed away.

    I loved having this conversation with Zinta. We discuss death and other topics most people do not like talking about but should be talking about. Zinta has a great approach and during our conversation I found myself looking differently at death and what legacy I would like to leave behind.


    I highly recommend that you listen to this episode. If you want to know how can you protect your legacy (which is not just about money by the way). What kind of things do you need to talk about with the people that you love before you are no longer here, and how can you resolve disputes surrounding wills and estates and while you are grieving.

    You can purchase Zinta's book called "Rest In Peace" in the link below:

    Ep 36 - How can you negotiate effectively within the workplace and avoid conflict.

    Ep 36 - How can you negotiate effectively within the workplace and avoid conflict.

    This episode is for anyone who is interested in preventing conflict in the workplace and creating an environment where people enjoy working and want to stay.
    I interviewed Jo Alilovic who is an HR lawyer that works with businesses to get things right from the beginning. She helps businesses with strategic planning, and preventative measures to avoid the legal claims that may arise when a working relationship breaks down.
    Jo and I talk about what bullying is and what it is not and how you can prevent conflict in the workplace. The work environment has changed a lot over the last years which has forced employees and employers to negotiate more than ever. The question is how do you do this best?
    Have a listen and please share this with anyone who you think can benefit from this. Do not forget to leave a review if you loved this episode. Thank you!

    Ep 35 - How Empathy Can Change Everything

    Ep 35 - How Empathy Can Change Everything

    This episode is a short one to remind you of the power of empathy. Empathy is amazing, but often we forget about it as we run though life in our fast moving society where we don't always get to connect with other people properly.


    When we are in conflict, or in a negotiation, we can get into a divisive mindset very quickly. Empathy is an easy way to get back into the space of collaboration.



    Listen to this episode to be reminded about the power of empathy in negotiation and conflict resolution and share with anyone who can benefit from this.


    I would love it if you could leave a review or let me know in a message what you are getting out of listening to Conversations to Cut the Conflict.

    Negotiation is a fact of life. We do it every day in our personal and professional lives. When you are confident in your negotiations and you know how to do it effectively you will be surprised at the kind of results you can produce.
     A lot of people want to be able to negotiate effectively but they do not know how. In this episode I will be sharing with you what you can do to get better outcomes in your negotiations. When you are confident in your negotiations and you know how to do it effectively you will be surprised at the kind of results you can produce.
