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.

Purchase the course here, and then send us your list of participants . We'll register them on the back end.

In addition to the $1,900 workshop fee, there is a discounted per-participant course fee of $39 - $130, depending on volume (for example, a staff of 20 would be $1,950, or $97.50 per person, making the total workshop cost $3,850). Once you sign up here, you'll be able to submit your list. If you want to talk this through or have any questions about the course, just contact us.

What participants are saying:

“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.”
