Program Topics:

Experts who study successful people suggest that success is 90 percent attitude and 10 percent skill. This workshop will address both attitude and skill as they relate to handling conflict. We will explore different perspectives on conflict resolution and their effectiveness and practice skills that support effective conflict resolution.  
Participants will take the Style Matters Assessment, which will enable them to find out which of the five main conflict-handling styles is their preferred style, the strengths and limitations of each style, and which styles they would benefit from developing. Participants will also discover where they may have “reactive” responses that interfere with their ability to resolve conflict. The workshop will cover conflict that may result from personality styles, communication styles, and competing priorities and values. The importance of working toward win/win results will be emphasized throughout.

Participants will:

  • learn the five main approaches to handling conflict and determine their preferred approach.
  • practice using the five approaches appropriately.
  • explore the role of listening in understanding the other person’s point of view.
  • analyze past conflict situations to understand contributing factors.
  • practice responding constructively when disagreements occur.
  • learn to distinguish between positions and underlying concerns.
  • learn how to better manage conflict in group settings such as team meetings.
