    This class is three mornings, offered in a participatory live online format with brief prework and learning exercises between sessions. Conflict in the workplace is normal, even inevitable. We tend to avoid it despite the many benefits of resolving conflict effectively.

In this interactive workshop, you'll learn about your own conflict styles and examine the pros and cons of each as they apply to varying conflicts in the workplace. We'll review the 5 approaches to resolving conflict and how to strategize which approach best fits a situation. Learn how conflict can change from dysfunctional to a factor in growth and success. You will understand your role in working toward a resolution with others.
