About the course
Conflict, misunderstandings, disagreements: It seems we’re always at odds with someone else at work. So why can’t we all just get along? Why does every task or project or decision have to be so difficult and feel so uncomfortable? Sometimes, the problem is not as deep as it seems on the surface level and can be addressed with a ‘quick fix’. Sometimes, the problem requires you to think in an analytical manner free from the biases of emotion in order to dissect the difference in opinion. For all types of conflict, our highly interactive 'Managing Conflict in the Workplace' workshop allows participants to assess themselves, determine their primary conflict resolution style, and determine which situations that style works best in.
Participants will gain:
- A specific recollection of when, where, and what they learned about conflict that may or may not be aiding them in the workplace
- An understanding of what constitutes conflict, its necessity in the workplace, and how to use it productively
- The ability to differentiate between conflict, misunderstanding, and disagreement, and develop an action plan for each
- A better understanding of the difference between positions and interests and how to use the tool to dissect conflict
