Handling conflicts in the workplace is a challenging, but necessary, reality for a Project Manager. How a leader deals with conflict either serves to better a team or contributes to its demise.

Conflict in teams is often cause by situations in which team members with different goals and needs clash, causing a loss of trust and often-intense personal animosity.

If you don’t handle conflict effectively, teamwork can quickly break down and talent may be wasted as people disengage from their work or leave.

The fact that conflict exists, however, is not necessarily a bad thing.

When you resolve it effectively, you can also eliminate many of the previously hidden problems that it brought to the surface.

In this conflict resolution webinar Shawn Stratton (LinkedIn profile) targets some of the most challenging aspects of communication that Project Managers face.

High-impact strategies that bring teams to the next level, where change is perceived as opportunity and adversity is turned into success, are revealed.

To keep your team members working effectively, despite coming into conflict with one another, you need to stop the downward spiral as soon as you can.

To do this, it helps to understand the key symptoms and causes before employing an effective conflict resolution model.

During the presentation you will discover:

  • The 5 Dysfunctions Of Teams
  • 5 major causes of destructive conflict
  • How to facilitate healthy conflict
  • A simple and effective conflict resolution model

Most likely, you use teams to accomplish critical tasks and projects at your organization.

But …

  1. When was the last time you purposefully and intentionally designed and deployed a team?
  2. Do you know what drives team performance?

In the proprietary research on this topic, HCI researchers examine how organizations are designing and deploying teams.

Dr. Jenna Filipkowski (LinkedIn profile), Ben Bratt (LinkedIn profile), MaryFran Heinsch (LinkedIn profile), & Aubrey K. Wiete (LinkedIn profile) discover how to improve the performance of working groups by:

  • Being intentional about team member composition,
  • Strengthening team leader skills and abilities, and
  • Offering development around interpersonal and task effectiveness.
