Topic: Conflict Resolution

Do you turn and walk the other way when you see someone who tends to push your buttons? Is time wasted in your meetings when the same two people argue over even the most minor differences? Do you find yourself becoming defensive when your bosses question your decisions? Conflict is a natural part of human interaction. Negative responses to it don’t have to be. Creative Conflict can help you think differently about conflict and how you deal with it.

This workshop will help you define conflict and learn skills and tools to move from conflict to creativity.We cover such concepts as:• Seeing the value of conflict• Understanding your emotional response to conflict• Steering conflict toward a more positive outcome• Understanding you can control your response to conflict; you can’t control other people’s behavior• Self-coaching
