Leading through conflict is an essential leadership skill. When leaders fail to respond quickly and effectively to conflict, the people they lead suffer and workplace performance plummets. Many conflicts would not spiral out of control if leaders used conflict resolution techniques that are easy to learn and utilize. This workshop provides strategies for leading through conflict with clarity and confidence. Participants will learn to use conflict analysis tools to understand complex interpersonal dynamics and team tension which will help them make informed choices for where and when to intervene in a conflict.
Please note: This workshop is taught by both a senior leader and a conflict management specialist.
