Conflict, how do we Manage Difficult Situations and People? - Next webinar: July 29, 2020 | 2:00 PM Central

One fact of life we cannot change is that we will always have difficult people and situations in our work environment; but working from home adds another layer to workplace conflict. How do we manage these situations, and are there ways to help alleviate conflict from occurring?

Real life examples could include getting off on the wrong foot with a new coworker – especially during new WFH protocols, unhealthy competition with coworkers, applying for the same in-org-position as a colleague, difficulties managing a new employee without the convenience of in-office culture to help guide expectations, and any other situation that needs healthy confrontation.

In this session we will discuss the Thomas-Kilman Conflict styles, as well as what your response should be in a conflict situation at work, whether with your management or colleagues. After this session, you’ll have several examples to keep in your pocket of what to say in difficult situations, and take control of the way people treat you, your thoughts, and your goals for growth in your work environment.

How do we ensure we can effectively present our message? What strategies should we use for a presentation, regardless of the audience size? In this session, we discuss proven presentation strategies to help bridge the gap while we all work from home. 

Join us for this 30 minute session that is part of an entire series meant to help you become a more effective communicator as you work from home!
