Stop Avoiding Conflict

Assertiveness and Confrontation Skills for Managers and Supervisors

Workplace conflict doesn’t just go away.  It festers, becoming bigger than the original cause.  When it’s ignored, a culture of resentment, anger and frustration breeds, resulting in poor moral, low productivity, staff turnover and the possibility of violence.  Conflict costs everyone.

Why do leaders let this happen?  They just simply don’t have the tools to manage conflict effectively, so they avoid it causing a negative impact on the organization, and the long-term careers of the leaders themselves.  For any manager, supervisor or leader, the ability to confront problems and handle conflict is not optional.

Bring these must-have skills to your team and create confident, conflict resolving, cohesive leaders.

  • Different stages of conflict
  • Different management styles for conflict situations
  • How to best confront issues, best approach
  • Separate emotions from issues
  • What not to do in conflict negotiation
  • Doing your own internal work
  • Defuse Conflict Effectively and Return to Productive Relationships
