Book Lynne to Speak at Your Next Event, and Make It Memorable!

 
lynne-maureen-hurdle-the-conflict-closerLynne Maureen Hurdle is a trainer, facilitator, “edutainer” and speaker. Her work in Transformational Conflict Resolution, with a focus on social and emotional learning, cross-cultural relations and contemplative practices gives her clients life-changing skills. Her engaging presentations, infused with performing arts are designed to teach people to be introspective, create dialogue and apply practical skills.
 
She has spent the last twenty-five years delivering her unique trainings, talks and workshops to clients from Harlem to Hong Kong and from the South Bronx to South Africa. Lynne has designed and delivered interventions for thousands of young people and adults. She teaches skills that elevate communication, diffuse tensions and bring people together in their homes, businesses and their communities.
 

 
Healing old wounds is always at the center of her work. Her belief that transforming others’ lives begins with transforming your own has led her to tackle a long time issue of learning how to truly love herself, which culminated in her well-received “The Weight of Hate” TEDxWomen talk.
 
Few people get to teach from a place of life mastery and educational attainment as Lynne does. In addition to living her work, she has earned a B.A. in Non-Violent Conflict and Change from Syracuse University and a M.Ed. concentrating in Conflict Resolution from Lesley University. Her immense passion for her work led several clients to coin the term “Lynnergy”, which along with a wealth of knowledge, she infuses into living life each day.

Life Talk Topics

 
 
Bold Leaders, Youth Leaders, Conflict and Relationships
With managers spending 20%-40% of their time handling employee disputes, today’s bold leaders have already recognized the need for top notch conflict resolution skills. Leaders that effectively step in rather than check out when conflicts arise, inspire and motivate employees to bring their best selves to work. The ability to be fearless, confident and skillful when all others are losing their heads elevates credibility, creates loyalty, raises productivity and establishes you as a true leader.
 
Growing Families From Resistance to Resolution
Having a plan for handling conflicts, learning to listen for what’s said and unsaid and being fully present are essential for families. When conflict happens, listening with heart and mind and developing inner clarity along with some key skills to respond on a consistent basis are the seeds that grow successful resolutions.
 
The Weight of Hate: Resolving the Conflict Within
Learning to love yourself is one of the most fruitful and difficult things to accomplish. Discovering all there is to like about YOU, taking control of your feelings and your thought-life, making mistakes and practicing self-forgiveness are all vital skills that keep you moving forward with your life.
 
Life Talks may also be customized for your group or organization.
