Professional Development Opportunity

Conflict to Collaboration

Conflict exists in every organization and to a certain extent may indicate a healthy exchange of ideas and creativity. However, no one wants conflicts with co-workers or supervisors to threaten the ability to work effectively. Conflict to Collaboration explores the roots of workplace conflict and presents tools for managing conflict effectively. Participants will learn practical skills they can put to immediate use in the workplace.
