Topic: Productive Conflict
Workplace conflict is inevitable. And while it’s tempting to avoid these uncomfortable situations altogether, there is a much more effective solution.
Conflict doesn’t need to be destructive to workplace performance or relationships. In fact, healthy conflict can actually be productive and even encouraged. Productive conflict can help build stronger relationships, teams, and performance. Teams who engage in productive conflict rely heavily on trust, and are better able to voice their opinions and concerns without fear, anxiety, or stress. Employees who participate in productive conflict are more likely to commit to change, hold themselves and others accountable to the goals of the team and company, and get results.
Alan will help attendees effectively respond to the uncomfortable and inevitable challenges of workplace conflict. Helping to curb destructive behaviors so that conflict can become productive, improving workplace relationships and business results.
