Managing Conflict Presentation
April 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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.
Come and learn more about how to be better at managing conflict. Attendance is free. Please email Tristan Alley <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you are planning to attend.
