What you will learn:
We often think of conflict as inherently bad; however, healthy conflict is necessary for teams and organizations to make effective decisions and have thriving cultures. Yet most of us run away from conflict and encourage those around us to avoid conflict-inducing behaviors. In this workshop, we'll learn the different types of conflict and the impact of each on groups and organizations. We'll learn and practice strategies for fostering good conflict and mitigating harmful conflict.
This workshop will also provide tools for team members to take back to their organizations to ensure lessons learned in this workshop are immediately applied in participants' work lives.
