Leading Through Conflict

It’s easy to think that leadership teams that clash on a regular basis will not perform well. Yet the most successful leaders and teams aren’t the ones that avoid conflict, but those that navigate it well. Think about it. If the best teams have people with diverse strengths and backgrounds, conflict is not only possible, but also predictable. The most successful teams are the ones that learn to work well with conflict – to argue and debate without losing respect or trust, to get to the best outcome. In this workshop, team members will:

  • Distinguish between thoughts and feelings to navigate difficult conversations more objectively;
  • Explore the attitudes and actions that help and hinder team work during conflict;
  • Learn about how systems awareness empowers team members to resolve conflicts;
  • Practice identifying and developing alignment during conflict;
