Conflict is paramount to leadership administration and innovation. Unfortunately, too many leaders struggle with conflict and its implications for change and creativity. This workshop will explore the roots of conflict, resolving conflict through negotiation, mediation, understanding one's styles, and the impact of power on decision making and innovation.
Throughout the workshop exploring resistance as a construct will be supplemented by reviewing Thomas & Kilman's conflict response styles and French & Raven's 6 Bases of Social Power.
This workshop is for anyone who has struggled with conflict in the work place, as a leader, as a team member or as an employee. The focus will be predominately on new and evolving leaders who are looking to enhance their skill set in conflict resolution and more effective administration of their program or department or organization.
