Do you shy away from conflict? In organizations across the world conflict is avoided. Expectations go unmet, values are violated, and overall under-performance exists because people do not know how to effectively resolve issues without resorting to the use of power. This one-hour session introduces you to concepts that enable you to begin to "integrate conflict" - to walk into it and effectively handle it - rather than avoid it.
As a result of participating in this session you will:
1. Learn the sources of conflict in the workplace.
2. Understand how power plays a role in conflict.
3. Learn the importance of not taking conflict personally.
4. Understand the importance of asking for accountability.

When it comes to effective leadership, “It’s all in your head.”
No one escapes the occasional bad mood, irrational thought, angry outburst, nasty self-righteousness, bad decision or mistrustful reaction: imperfections make us human.
Most often we commit these missteps in private.
But behave that way just once in the glare of the public spotlight, and you earn a reputation as being “that sort of person.” Why? Because presiding over other people gives you celebrity power.
When you take a close look at why good leaders go bad (temporarily versus the chronically horrible leaders that go bad every minute of the day), you usually find three overarching reasons:
- Too busy to win
- Too proud to see
- Too afraid to lose
Think of these root causes, not as cancers that can kill, but as common colds, which anyone can easily and quickly cure with the right medicine.
With insight into the neuroscience, psychology, and group dynamics that often flip the switch from good to temporarily bad leader, this program shines a bright light into the dark corners of these leadership snafus.
