Julie Leitz is a psychologist and neuroscientist who escaped her Oxford lab to help teams and their leaders create from conflict. She believes that learning how to have tough conversations is the key to peak performance.

Having observed that there are crucial, tough conversations that every team absolutely needs to have but is avoiding out of fear that conflict of ideas might escalate into interpersonal conflict, Julie is on a mission to change our perspective on conflict by helping leaders and their teams harness the potential and power inherent to it.

A coach and consultant working with leading organisations across Europe, Julie holds a Masters of Science in Neuroscience from the University of Oxford and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the American University of Paris. She is the founder of the School of Conflict, which is dedicated to conflict transformation, and a co-founder of Human Centric Leaders, which specialises in leadership development.

Before launching the School of Conflict, Julie worked in different research laboratories at the University of Oxford and University College London, where she published several scientific articles in international, peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of Neuroscience. She brings her academic background to her work and combines it with actionable insights and tools from her unique experience in organisations.

Originally from Paris, Julie has been living in London for ten years and counting. Its eclectic mix of cultures, landscapes, and people, as well as the many green spaces it has to offer, make it her favourite city in the world.

How To Have Difficult Conversations. Dealing with a difficult client, giving your boss feedback about their behaviour or sharing parenting tips with your mother in law—everything that matters most in life happens in conversations.

There are two main reasons for this: the fear that disagreement will escalate into interpersonal conflict and the fear of receiving backlash from the boss. This keynote dives into the ultimate trait of top performing teams: the ability to embrace conflict and create a team culture of open dialogue, disagreement, and debate.

Got Feedback? If you’re, well, a human being, then you know that feedback is tricky business. Just hearing the word can be enough for people to tense up. And yet, there is no denying that a poorly designed feedback environment is like a ticking bomb. Effective teamwork, employee engagement, and quality client relationships are just some of the things that depend on it. This keynote explores how to create a resilient feedback culture by learning the art and science of receiving feedback, which turns out to be the key to giving it.
