A key predictor of career success—however you define it—is how well you negotiate the conflicts that are part of any group effort.
Conflict is inevitable, but doesn't have to be feared or unpleasant. In fact, properly handled conflict can be a catalyst for creative thinking and positive change.
This workshop explores ways to think about what conflict is, why it happens, and how to manage it in professionally appropriate ways that enhance your ability to achieve solutions that meet everyone’s needs.
