Navigating Conflict, Contention and Competing Perspectives Webinar
Women Lead Webinar Series
Everyone is challenged at times by coping with the conflicts that exist in today's matrix-ed organization. We know win-win is the optimal strategy but it's not always feasible.
This session will focus on what to do when win-win isn't an option given limited resources and conflicting interests. We will discuss four strategies, when to use each strategy and when to avoid each.
In addition the session will highlight:
- The dynamics for workplace conflict and how it unfolds
- What to do to keep tensions at a tolerable level
- How to keep you own emotions in balance and ultimately how to compete effectively
Leadership Expert and Executive Coach, Wanda Wallace, will facilitate the first in a two part series on conflict that will provide a primer on handling this common workplace issue. Each of these sessions can stand alone but participating in both will allow a deeper understanding and some practice in dealing with this challenging topic.
