Session Duration

Learning Objective
The value of conflict prevention vs. conflict management
How to function successfully in the midst of on-going conflict
How to keep their emotions from running the show

Session Description
While no one enjoys conflict, it is often inevitable in a working environment. Unnecessary conflict can, at very least, affect production, morale and employee retention. At worst, unresolved conflict can cripple an organization.

The most successful and dynamic organizations, corporations and individuals learn how to resolve conflict before it starts, and create an atmosphere that fosters buy-in, growth, understanding, and expression.

These skills do not typically come naturally, but they can be learned! Participants will leave this program understanding how to prevent most conflict before it arises and how to manage that which can’t be prevented, to minimize its effect on individuals and the overall organization.
