When one considers six generations, gender inequality, cultural clashes, power dynamics, microaggressions, and implicit biases occurring in nearly every workplace conflict is inevitable. If workplace conflict is foreseeable how do you approach it constructively over destructively? During this seminar attendees will learn strategies to respectfully and empathetically approach conversations that they often want to avoid. A word of caution, this training comes with a “twist” which will have attendees walking away examining where the conflict truly resides.
