Navigating Workplace Conflict

Class Type(s): Professional Development,

Class Number: HR-LOD136
Cost: $50

Description:

Conflict is inevitable in any diverse workforce. You can’t control an interpersonal conflict, but you can take steps to keep it from controlling you! While not every interpersonal conflict can (or should) be resolved, choosing the right conflict management style and techniques can limit potentially negative outcomes. Under the right circumstances, using a collaborative approach can pave the way for clarifying underlying interests; expanding the range of potential solutions; and reaching a mutually satisfying agreement. 

 

Facilitator: Anne White
