Harnessing Power and Conflict in the Workplace
Did you know:
Ø 1 out of 2 professionals feel like their boss does not respect them
Ø 40% of the average manager’s workday is spent stuck in conflict
Ø It costs anywhere from 200% to 400% to replace high level talent
These statistics are real because people in the workplace do not harness the energy of conflict for useful and productive ends. They tend to get into their default conflict resolution mindsets instead, which escalate situations or allow them to stagnate and then explode.
In this session, you will be introduced to a methodology of shifting from your chronic mindset to strategic and adaptive behaviors of engaging with your colleagues up and down the organizational chart. After some introductory remarks, we will look at a case study and do some roleplaying. You will leave with evidence-based tactics to employ beginning when you get to work that day.
