Finding Common Ground: Managing Conflict

Both difficult situations and conflict mis-management are part of life, and certainly project management. This brief, practical session provides an understanding of what triggers conflict, choices for managing difficult interactions, and some tools that can be used immediately to get off the defensive and find common ground when the going gets tough. Come away with a toolkit that helps you as a project manager in your next conflict with colleagues, team members, or even worse: stakeholders.
