Workshop on Conflict Management on Sep 6, 2019
Kathleen Kyle, MA. Ed

Conflicts arise constantly in the workplace, and the inability to come to a resolution can often times lead to devastating results. In recent years our society has become hyper-vigilant with respect to difference of all forms including national origin, gender, and sexual orientation among others. The workplace is not immune to the conflicts that arise from diversity. When left unchecked, these conflicts can escalate. In a diverse work force, the ability to resolve conflict in a timely and effective manner can prevent escalation and increase productivity. The workshop at the conference for pre-tenure women will:
  • Discuss different styles and approaches to conflict resolution
  • Discuss how to create an environment for dialogue by focusing on conflict management skills
