LDP 4: Managing Conflict & Difficult Conversations (closed)
January 10 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
Session closed to LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (LDP) FOR RESEARCHERS selected participants only.
This highly interactive 90-minute session provided participants with the opportunity to examine and build on their conflict resolution skills. They assessed their conflict style, considered what they may bring to conflict conversations that may help or hinder them and discuss what so often goes wrong. What are the fundamental skills that would help them to be effective? How can they prepare for a conflict conversation? Ultimately, in conflict situations, what can they influence?
