Working With – and Through – Conflict

One of the keys to effective partnerships and collaborations is the ability to negotiate differences. Considering that conflict arises from difference, conflict is a natural dynamic that can produce a variety of outcomes, from positive to negative, depending on many situational factors and our approach to such situations. In this session we explore multiple dimensions of conflict, our own natural responses, and effective ways to approach various types of conflict situations.

Objectives:

  • Understand one’s own conflict style – one’s typical approach for dealing with conflict
  • Examine the patterns, factors, and outcomes of conflict situations
  • Identify effective behaviors for managing conflict

Target Audience:  This program will help anyone who must work closely with others to accomplish goals – whether in community organizations, in businesses,  or in work and educational settings.
