Conflict – From Prevention to Resolution™

You are here

Abstract: 

When people are working together, differences of opinion and approach are inevitable. Conflict can create problems in work productivity and alignment, or it can be used positively to take advantage of diverse perspectives and promote creativity and innovation.

Conflict – From Prevention to Resolution™ enables you to gain a better understanding of the sources of conflict, and learn tools for preventing conflict from arising. It also provides methods for taking advantage of differences. Conflict – From Prevention to Resolution™ is a skills-based, constructive approach that can release the energy tied up in conflict, allowing creative resolution and more productive relationships.
