Project Results with People: Addressing Conflict
March 9 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Are your team harmonics disrupted by conflict?
Conflicts are costly, in terms of emotions, mental health and of course productivity and money. What can you do on the ground to address, reduce, appease or even clear conflict altogether? It’s in your power – if you know how.
Whether business–to–business, business–to–customer or between employees, conflict can prove costly if unchecked. This exercise–intensive course examines current conflict resolution and mediation techniques to empower executives and managers to resolve conflicts and minimise damage.
By the end of this course, you will understand the causes of conflict, and be able to engage parties and move towards amicable resolutions.
Who Should Attend?
This course is for new project managers and team members as well as those who’ve practiced project management for a while. It’s intended for people who want a thorough review of project management tools, and it contains many practical exercises.
