What is LOD®?

Drama is a negative conflict where people ignore the root cause of their problem and fight each other to justify a negative behavior. They aren’t focused on solutions, but only on protecting that behavior.

Pioneered by Next Element Consulting, LLC, a global laboratory for advancing art and science of transformative communication, LOD helps people lean into conflict and lead out of drama. This model for positive conflict is rapidly gaining traction worldwide as the next frontier for global leadership. It draws on evidence-based best practices, a decade of outcomes research and experience across multiple organizational, cultural and team environments.
