Organizational conflict can be debilitating to a manager and negatively harm organizational productivity and employee engagement. Organizational conflict does not have to be dysfunctional—you can leverage it positively with the right strategies.

So how do you remake this dreaded workplace activity into something positive?

Attend this webinar, which will better equip you to:

  • Accept the dual nature of conflict—its disadvantages and its benefits.
  • Assess the potential benefits you can achieve by handling your workplace conflicts more strategically.
  • Avoid harming your organizational standing by becoming unbalanced in your conflict resolution approach (too nice, too aggressive, or too collaborative).
  • Improve your working relationships and organizational standing by using appropriate conflict resolution strategies.
