Tuesday, February 19: Conflict Strategies

  • 1:00-4:30 p.m.
  • 207 Sneden
  • Conflict is present in all aspects of our lives. An individual’s personal professional, and emotional health is greatly affected by how successfully he or she manages conflict. Individuals rely on each other to attain goals and are continually being thrown into situations where they need to handle conflict in a constructive manner – without being taught how to accomplish this. This half-day course will expose individuals to the different ways that people react in conflict situations, show them what their preferred strategy is in situations of conflict, and then help them plan to use a more integrating style of conflict resolution more effectively at work.
