Conflict at work is inevitable, but not all conflict is bad. In fact, some disagreement may even be beneficial. Conflict requires us to face issues and overcome challenges. Conflict encourages us to come up with new ways to solve problems and deal with diverse personalities. However, conflict must be addressed swiftly and appropriately otherwise it can lead to loss of productivity, employee turnover and even more deadly consequences. The goal is not to eliminate discord but to learn how to manage conflict effectively. Most people spend more than forty hours a week at work. Attend this webinar to find out how to make that time as pleasant and productive as possible.
