Lean In Canada’s Vancouver Chapter welcomes Joanna Shea to lead the discussion on conflict management. Whether in the workplace or your day-to-day life, conflict is inevitable. It occurs between individuals who care about a particular matter but have opposing views. As professionals, caring about your team, research, budget, project and job prospects is critical to your livelihood. It is understandable that when one encounters opposition, your immediate reaction may be one of anxiety, anger or frustration. Instead of backing away from the conflict, or attacking, this workshop aims to have you engage, strategically! Tools and techniques will be provided on how to control your reaction, get to the root cause of the problem and determine an acceptable solution go forward. To avoid conflict is to fail.
This workshop is delivered interactively, providing attendees with relevant research, case studies, and role-playing scenarios via breakout rooms focused on:
- Respecting conflict
- Responding to conflict
- Reacting to conflict
- Identifying the source of the conflict
- Resolving conflict
Come join us for an evening of discussion on conflict management followed by an opportunity to network with likeminded people!
