    Topic Description:

    Conflict thrives in today’s dynamic workplaces. Conflict in the workplace can be particularly stressful – your livelihood depends on workplace success.  So often, HR finds itself in the middle of the conflict, whether it’s theirs to resolve or help facilitate a solution. No matter the circumstances, conflict management is an essential competency for all HR professionals. This lively, interactive workshop will explore the causes of conflict at work and give the participants the opportunity to engage each other in discussions so they can take the leap toward addressing, managing and optimizing workplace conflict.
