  • Improve and sustain a healthy working environment
  • Build rapport among colleagues
  • Increase faculty and staff morale

1:00 – 3:00 p.m. Eastern

Part 1: Building Your Conflict Strategy Map

We’ll begin by learning how to build a Conflict Strategy Map. Our speaker will walk you through how to identify and better understand the details around:

  • What the conflict is about
  • Who is engaged in the conflict
  • The context, others’ perspectives, and special circumstances

You will then identify a conflict in your work life and apply the conflict strategy map.

 


Part 2: Building Your Action Plan

After mapping out your conflict, we’ll discuss conflict management strategies, and then you will create an action plan to address your conflict. This plan will help you to strategize the details around action, timing, and communication.
