People whose success at work depends on their ability to effectively manage conflict

Overview

Conflict management involves situations where the interests of two or more people differ and where those people can influence one another’s ability to achieve their respective interests. When business people listen to each other’s viewpoints, while also assertively advocating their own point of view, conflict is unavoidable. Conflict is valuable as a way to develop optimal solutions, but must be managed effectively. This webinar defines conflict and explores why conflict is not only inevitable but also valuable.

Reviews

The workforce as a whole can benefit from this course. Situations tend to become emotional and learning to diffuse them and change our problem solving approach can create more effective work relationships.– Evernote, Manager, People Ops.

It’s a very interactive course, which felt like it was “our” workshop instead of just hearing a speaker talk. In addition, we were given the appropriate tools to help resolve day to day conflicts.– Netgear, Group Manager, Knowledge Base
