Conflict is on the rise in organizations. Are you ready?

The costs of avoiding conflict are staggering, even if we don't always see it. Time wasted in unproductive meetings (or avoiding people altogether), implementation delays or mistakes, and reduced morale. In this course, your whole team will get on the same page about having productive and efficient conflict conversations. We'll cover three areas:

  • Strengthening your internal mindset, including understanding conflict styles and improving your EQ.

  • Techniques for better problem-solving, including interest-based negotiation and using coaching techniques.

  • Tools for better conflict conversations that we have used effectively with clients (and in areas of ethnic conflict, frankly) for decades.

Compelling, pragmatic, and concrete...

“In my twenty-year professional career, I've participated in numerous courses targeted at advancing business, workplace, and personal skills, including managing conflicts. The Conflict Resolution Training in PROPEL+ has been the first course that I've actually requested to revisit and re-absorb. Compelling, pragmatic, and concrete, Jamie Notter masterfully guides the learner through increasingly complex scenarios that find the light in the gray, and leaves the learner with tools for the real world.”

Why should you take this course?


    We waste so much time doing end-runs around complete departments because we're afraid of conflict. Want to finish ahead of schedule? Then learn to do conflict well.


    Our data shows that organizations who handle change well also report the ability to deal with conflict easily. If you want agility, you need better conflict.


    The top talent won't tolerate a workplace full of drama and unresolved conflict, at least not for long. Create a workplace people want to be at, which means handling conflict.
