Conflict Resolution in the Workplace

Introduction & Background

Conflict in the workplace is one of the most unpleasant experiences that people have there.  Handled poorly, it escalates into entrenched positions and negatively dominates people's lives.  Further, it undermines workplace goals and threatens careers.  Many years of practice and research in the field of conflict resolution, however, have shown that conflict is a normal part of organizational functioning and, handled well both by individuals and leadership, leads to greater individual and group capacities. 

This workshop focuses on the knowledge and skills required for individuals to work through conflict in a healthy and constructive way, resulting in positive work relationships and better quality of life.
