Engaging Constructively in Conflict

June 8, 2021 4:00 - 5:00 PM
Registration for Zoom Link

Conflict is inevitable. While it is neither good nor bad in and of itself, how it is handled can impact the outcome. Engaging constructively in conflict means being willing to discuss issues openly and honestly, to take perspective and listen to understand. But, this is not easy to do. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore how conflict shows up at work and identify ways to respond effectively when it does.
