The differences people bring to the workplace can promote tremendous creativity and innovation. Those same differences also can contribute to misunderstandings, which can lead to discord and, if left unresolved, dispute. Individual performers need to know how to effectively navigate beyond conflict to prevent damage from occurring.

In this course, individual performers learn how to recognize the warning signs of conflict and take action to prevent situations from escalating or to work out the conflict if it does escalate. This allows them to mitigate any negative impact, thus reducing the cost of conflict and improving business results.
