Who Can Benefit
This is a great training for anyone interested in learning how to manage conflict for themselves and others. It’s also great for supervisors, managers and HR professionals who help others deal with conflict in the workplace.
Conflict is a normal part of any social and organizational setting—the challenge of conflict lies in how we deal with it.
Concealed, avoided or otherwise ignored, conflict will likely fester only to grow into resentment, create withdrawal or cause problems within an organization.
Experience the Results
In this fun and informative workshop, learn the three productive conflict skills that increase employee engagement and customer satisfaction.
