006: How To Handle Confrontation With Courage & Grace w/ Lora Clothier

Confrontation is something most of us avoid seeking out - often at all costs. But as Lora Clothier shares with us today, we need to find a way to get comfortable with confrontation to be able to handle it effectively, if we want to get the most out of our lives.

Like most of us, confrontation never came easy for Lora, but she has learned how to take that apprehension and use it to address difficult situations as they arise.

Those situations have cropped up in growing her physical therapy practice to a point where she now employs 15 people, to loving her husband’s children from his first marriage, plus her background in sports. We talk about how titles are important and how they can help to alter someone’s perspective, as well as Laura's transition from transitioning from a background in communications into the field of physical therapy.

How do you handle confrontation? Do you use titles in your daily life to create influence? How do you approach and talk about difficult conversations? Let me know in the comments!

In This Episode:

  • How sports can help you gain confidence in other areas of your life
  • What failed relationships can lead you to learn about what you could have done differently
  • Why you should never avoid confrontation and what the best way to actually address conflict is
  • How you can foster loving relationships when blending families
  • How titles can impact someone’s perception
  • What the difference between physical therapy and chiropractic care is and how you can utilize both preventative cares to enhance your health
  • Why it’s important to get people talking about those topics that matter

 

Quotes:

“Sports does so many more things than just work you out.” (10:06)

“It’s like having this mountain in the carpet that you stuff all your problems in, and you don’t say anything about it, you walk around it and stuff more problems in. Until it gets too big that you can’t get by it anymore.” (15:28)

“We don’t really allow ourselves to have the grace to learn and be comfortable or be uncomfortable, and have those tough conversations without having real friction and issues with it.” (18:40)
