Creative Conflict

When we avoid difficult conversations we trade short term discomfort for long term dysfunction.
Albert Einstein said that in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. Conflict may be avoidable and preventable but it may also be necessary. Creative Conflict is about  being able to identify the opportunities that conflict can provide and how the outcome may be  turned into opportunities for a stronger relationship going forward.

Creative Conflict will challenge you to think out of the box.  It will help you build trust, improve your communication skills and create the right environment for healthy conflict.  All of which leads to constructive styles of collaboration and fully engaged employees.

Outcomes of this half day workshop:

  • Understanding how communication can turn into conflict.
  • Why do certain people “push your buttons”.Why do certain people “push your buttons”.
  • How to prepare for conversations.
  • Tools to handle conflict and build tolerance.
