Dealing With Conflict

Conflict is a normal part of life and a natural occurrence in interpersonal relationships.  When conflict emerges in the workplace it has the potential of interfering with productivity and creating morale problems.  Participants in this program will have an opportunity to examine the sources of conflict and the behavioral characteristics that intensify or prolong conflict.  Because people have different ways of dealing with conflict situations, a group exercise will allow participants to experience the various styles of conflict management and resolution.  Effective communication and listening skills will be discussed as well as tips for handling conflict.
