Dealing with conflict doesn’t have to be difficult. Most of us have a general understanding of how to deal with conflict, but when was the last time you took a minute to think about the conflict resolution process? By understanding the process of dealing with conflict, we can start to become more aware of our misunderstandings. We can deal with small issues before they become mountains.
In this workshop, participants will identify their personal approach to conflict and discuss how these approaches can be useful and harmful depending on the situation. After identifying conflict resolution styles, we will explore a process for conflict resolution that creates a safe, supportive environment for people to openly discuss issues. We will also discuss the difference between being a party to a conflict and trying to mediate a conflict as a manager or colleague. Participants will have the ability to discuss and explore various strategies and leave with resources for future development.
