Collaboration among co-workers to meet the organization’s goals has never been more important. Organizations are expecting employees at all levels to work together--often across functions--to solve problems and make decisions that were once the exclusive responsibility of management. This new way of working also creates new opportunities for conflict making. Resolving conflict is a necessary skill for all workers. This one-day course provides participants with the skills to turn conflict into opportunities to achieve positive results. Attendees will explore their past experiences and habits in dealing with conflicts, learn new ways of thinking about conflict, understand choices they have in conflict, as well as analyzing their individual level of emotional intelligence. They will leave with tips and techniques to keep their emotions in check, to help others go from unreasonable to reasonable, and to have difficult but necessary conversations.
