Date: October 20, 2017 Time: 8:30am - 11:00am Location: Hawaii Employers Council
Conflicts are inevitable in any business environment. If handled constructively versus destructively, they serve as stimulators for positive solutions and change. Conflicts simply defined are differences – differences often in views, methods, or styles between two or more parties. They come into play in work environments with business issues and with working relationships – usually referred to as personality clashes.
Unfortunately, many people lack the skill and confidence to deal with conflicts constructively – the key to success. They either come on too harshly, complain behind the other person’s back, or avoid dealing with the conflicts at all. This session provides participants with tools for achieving resolutions to conflict situations that are mutually beneficial and respectful.
In this session, the following points are explored:
The four common communication approaches people use and how they function in conflict situations.
The simplified resolving concerns conflict resolution model for handling working relationship conflicts.
The communication tool of shift and show understanding, a critical behavior for managing conflict situations.
The communication tool of describing for objectively explaining concerns.
