Leadership for managing conflict and culture

Every conflict is an opportunity for leadership, great leadership is tested during conflict. There are two main kinds of conflict; when people’s ideas, decisions or actions relating directly to a project (or task) are in opposition or when two or more people just don’t get along. Unmanaged conflict can become a problem which can lead to a crisis and can also impact culture.

How and when do you manage a conflict before it escalates to a formal complaint as a Leader? Dealing with conflict in a timely and effective manner requires professionalism and maturity that goes beyond basic standards of complaints/grievance handling.

Please join us for a workshop involving an interactive presentation and case studies reflecting on how great leaders handle conflict management before it gets to a crisis state.

This session will explore:

• The connection between emotional intelligence and conflict
• Various solutions for conflict
• The five modes of conflict
• The art of how to lose the battle and win the war
