Session Description

Group members don’t always get along well. Even in the most high-functioning group, one person may trigger another and the energy in the room may shift from good-vibes-all-around to defensiveness and hostility. These seemingly counterproductive dynamics are learning opportunities to be embraced. Leaders and managers who are able to understand and resolve conflict are better able to deepen connection and grow.

In this fundamental training, participants learn the five basic causes of conflict, intragroup conflict, and intergroup conflict and how to navigate them to foster stronger teams and move work forward.
