April 18th, 2017 Monthly Conference Call

Join us at 12pm as Joe Scarlett and Mary Fink welcome special guest Dr. Andrew Johnston to discuss Conflict Management.

Topics to be explored:

  • The definition of conflict
  • That conflict in organizations is positive, not negative, as long as it is managed well. So why do so many people fear it and try to avoid it?
  • That there are five styles for managing and resolving conflict. We will describe the styles and talk about when each style is appropriate
  • What makes difficult conversations difficult
  • How to prepare for difficult conversations, so that we minimize emotion, and have more productive conversations
