Resolving Conflict on the Frontlines
Conflict is an inevitable part of work. Whether between individuals or teams, at some point, conflict will arise and need to be addressed. But resolving conflict doesn’t need to be a negative experience, in fact, managing conflict can be a catalyst for positive change. This half-day program explores various work relationships and their impact on the employee, how business relationships can be managed to avoid unnecessary conflict, how to use effective resolution steps when conflict occurs, and how to deal with difficult people when managing conflict.
Assertiveness skills are crucial to professional development, as well as other aspects of life. You will learn to ask for what you need, handle confrontations gracefully, and how to put ideas forward with confidence. Not only do these skills improve teamwork, focus discussions, and build relationships, but they also help individuals to become competent, constructive, confident, and perform at their best.

Successful supervisors know it takes time to do what’s best for the long-term success of the organization, its employees, and even themselves. They also know that they can overcome just about any challenge by exercising the “three keys”: realism, restraint, and resolve. The Toughest Supervisor Challenges gives both new and experienced managers the supervisory skills, tools, and techniques they need to evaluate the situation at hand and choose the appropriate response.
