Conflict is normal in the workplace, where people with different values, goals, and perspectives manage complex and stress-provoking work and situations.
Conflict is inevitable in the workplace but it doesn’t have to be destructive. By applying Emotional Intelligence techniques you can reduce negative conflict and learn how to constructively manage it and take advantage of its opportunities. You can learn how to transition a potentially negative situation to one that allows us to entertain new possibilities.
In this webinar we will look at how conflict arises and how to reduce its frequency by applying Emotional Intelligence. We will also look at how EI techniques can help us better communicate and get our point across as well as help reduce tensions or hostilities in others so that we can get to a positive outcome with lasting affirmative results.
Why should you Attend:
Do you fear conflict? Does it add unwanted stress to your workday? Do you spend wasted energy worrying about issues you may have to deal with other people on? Conflict can be overwhelming especially when we don’t have a plan or procedure for handling it. But there are many techniques you can employ by using Emotional Intelligence that will help you minimize conflict and turn it into positive results.
Emotional Intelligence is the secret sauce to life that can help you live a more happy and stress free existence. Learning key EI techniques can help you reduce conflict and even look forward to it, as a way to refine your skills and create more positive outcomes for all.
