Additionally, the presenter has created a completely ANONYMOUS Survey Monkey for participants to submit real life examples of conflicts prior to the class to discuss: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8VPQTJH

Description of the program:

Conflict in the workplace is inevitable . . . and tricky to manage! Come expand your skills and confidence as we examine some useful techniques, then explore real-life work conflicts involving coworkers, and how they might be resolved. To make our session more fun and useful to you, you’re invited to anonymously submit the workplace conflicts that have stymied you here. We’ll consider as many as time allows during the workshop.

Whatever your position, you’ll leave this session with greater understanding of your current skill level, a deeper insight into areas for growth, and strategies and resources for becoming even more adept at managing conflict in the workplace!
