You may not know that 88 percent of employees report that their supervisors handle conflict poorly. Bridge the gap with our 1-day workshop, The Conflict-Savvy Leader, through Davenport University IPEx! Learn a proven, step-by-step process for permanently restoring collaboration between direct reports or other key members of your teams. 

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Transform attitudes of “us versus them” into a hardheaded search for solutions
  • React with confidence when individuals pressure you to take sides
  • Achieve lasting resolution despite conflicting accounts of past events
  • Shift the focus from who’s “right” to eliminating specific behaviors that are destroying collaboration

Turn blame into a shared responsibility for the future

Who should attend?

  •  Leaders, Managers, and/or Supervisors
  • Any professional interested in improving conflict resolution
