Many of us experience “fight or flight” responses when it comes to conflict. Effective leaders, however, handle conflict in a constructive manner and enable others to do the same. These leaders also champion conflict competency in their organizations and find that conflict can actually work to their advantage, fostering new ideas and stronger teams.
In this session you will learn:
- The importance of dealing with organizational conflict effectively
- Ways to maintain control of your emotions when faced with conflict
- How to enhance your use of constructive conflict behaviors
- What it takes to champion conflict competence in your organization
