Productive Conflict in the Workplace

Overview

Conflict can be extremely uncomfortable and awkward. It triggers a diversity of behaviors across a team, ranging from mean spirited and destructive conflict to healthy and productive debate. Conflict is not a bad thing. For teams to thrive, it’s critical that a team engages in conflict to reach the best possible outcomes. Managing productive conflict not only avoids lost productivity, it promotes healthy behaviors and respectful communication within teams.

This interactive and hands-on experience provides team members with actionable strategies to harness conflict and drive team productivity and results.

Program Agenda

Establish a Language of Teamwork

This interactive program kicks off establishing a Language of Teamwork using the principles of Everything DiSC.

Emulating the pace of the day-to-day, teams are tasked to strategize quickly, develop innovation solutions, evaluate possible alternatives, execute efficiently, and manage opportunities for improvement – managing potential conflict throughout the process.
