- Part III - November 21, 2017
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, 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.
