THE COURAGE TO CONFRONT: SMART PROBLEM-SOLVING IN THE FACE OF CONFLICT

 
It takes courage to confront. This thought-provoking and interactive session will begin with a deep dive into emotional intelligence and why emotions are critical to your success. We also explore seven basic conflict management styles that each have a time and a place depending on your goals and objectives. We also discuss one model for navigating difficult conversations and generating innovative solutions for individuals, teams, and stakeholders.
