Conflict Resolution – Getting along in the Workplace

All of us experience conflict. We argue with our spouses, disagree with our friends, and sometimes even quarrel with strangers at a hockey game. At times we lose sight of the fact that all this conflict is normal. So long as people are individuals there will be the potential for conflict.

Since you can’t prevent conflict, the most important thing is to learn how to handle or manage it in productive ways. That’s what this workshop is designed to help you do.
