One-day training
that will help you understand agressive, counterproductive behavior
and teach you how to be a more effective group leader or team member.

As a leader of people (or a member of a team effort), it becomes necessary from time to time to defuse the sort of conflict which tends to misdirect and weaken organizational achievement and vitality. Neither ignoring disagreements nor "agreeing to disagree" sets the proper stage for united group action (maximum focus of group resources).

Conflicts may occur between team or organizational members as a result of real or imagined intentions and events. It takes capable leadership to identify conflict and neutralize it before it becomes destructive. In this workshop you will be given practical and useful steps to identify, reduce and resolve the various types of team and organizational conflicts. Participants will learn how to maximize group efforts, understand team-building activities, and make group projects a positive experience for all.

  • 4 basic ways to resolve conflicts

3 Immediate Benefits for your organization

  1. Positive conflict produces change.
    Conflict is often symptomatic of deeper organizational issue. As such it is often the first step for changing outdated procedures, revising rules and regulations, and sparking innovation and creativity.
  2. Positive conflict leads to unity.
    Addressing (not supressing) conflict opens the lines of communiction, gets people talking to each other (instead of about each other) and makes people feel like they are part of a team that cares.
  3. Positive conflict promotes compromise.
    People can learn how to work harmoniously, come up with creative solutions to problems and reach outcomes that benefit everyone involved.
