Episode 204: "Conflict On The Farm" w/Elaine Froese

In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks to Elaine Froese about “Conflict On The Farm.”

Farming is challenging enough to begin with. Then add in family, and perhaps multiple generations of family, and it becomes conflict waiting to happen.

In this episode, Tracy and Elaine chat about:
  • How conflict is always perceived as negative and meant to be avoided at all costs. Elaine speaks to the fact that conflict is not bad.
  • In her role, Elaine deals with farm families that are experiencing conflict. She shares the areas that most farm families struggle with.
  • She shares positive conflict behaviours that we want to embrace, destructive ones we want to let go of, and hot-button triggers. This is good stuff!
  • At the AgEx event in November, Elaine will be helping farmers in the audience understand the questions needed to get clarity for better conflict resolution. She shares these questions with our audience.
  • Each person handles conflict differently based on so many different variables. Elaine has a Conflict Dynamic Profile, and she tells our audience more about this tool.
  • Tracy always ends by asking Elaine a similar question…. “How do farmers know when it is time to bring in outside help like a farm coach?"

If you are experiencing conflict on your farm or want to proactively learn how to improve your communication style… this episode is for you.
