Got conflict? If you work with people on a regular basis chances are you have witnessed what can happen when conflict is not managed. Most of us, professionals and volunteers alike, spend time with difficult people and navigating challenging topics. But having challenging people in a group doesn't mean the group cannot achieve its purpose. Join us, as we explore the behaviors that set the stage for conflict and some strategies for managing your way through tough situations. Be sure to bring your favorite resources to share.
