Conflict Resolution Seminar
September 12 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Do you strive to improve relationship building in your workplace? The DREAM Series is back for fall! Union River Center for Innovation and the Ward-Green Group are teaming up to present this seminar on Conflict Resolution. Admission is free and open to all area businesses. Please use this link to RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dream-series-seminar-conflict-resolution-tickets-69294879851.
According to a 2016 study conducted by CPP Inc.* (publishers of the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Assessment and the Myers-Briggs Personality Assessment), U.S. employees spend 2.1 hours/week involved with conflict. If those employees are paid $18/hour, this translates to $359 billion in paid hours, or the equivalent of 385 million working days spent every year in the U.S. as a result of conflict in the workplace. On an individual and organizational level, we have much to gain by learning to reach a positive outcome with those 385 million working days spent on conflict.
For many, conflict is perceived as a negative event, to be avoided at all costs. Others view conflict differently and find it exciting and energizing. When managed effectively, conflict can strengthen relationships, lead to better problem-solving, enhance productivity and support stronger business financial results. Awareness of our natural, default style of managing ourselves in conflict and training to develop skills that support conflict resolution are critically important to achieve positive outcomes with managing differences with others.
In this interactive and skill-building workshop you will:
-learn about a framework for understanding conflict
-develop understanding of five conflict management styles and potential strengths and drawbacks of each style
-identify and practice skills and behaviors that support resolving conflict with others, using a real-life case
Who should attend:
Anyone who is interested in improving their competence and confidence with dealing with conflict situations more effectively and productively.
