Productive Conflict with DiSC®
May 17, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Conflict is a normal part of working with customers, co-workers and suppliers and can be a healthy part of doing business. This workshop provides you with self awareness around how you handle conflict and greater awareness of how others handle conflict. It also equips you for those times when conflict is anything but healthy, giving you ways to avoid or manage difficult situations. This interesting and fun workshop can help you be a better part of a more productive team.
Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict helps participants improve self-awareness around conflict behaviors. Rather than focus on a step-by-step process for conflict resolution, Everything DiSC Productive Conflict provides participants with techniques to curb destructive behaviors and effectively respond to conflict situations. The program features an exploration of DiSC® in a conflict context, provides an opportunity for participants to explore their destructive conflict responses, and offers them a method for making more productive choices in their response to conflict.
- Appreciate how your style of handling conflict affects the people around you
- Learn how to “catch” yourself when going down a destructive conflict path
- Learn how to reframe a conflict situation and choose more productive behaviors
- Build a common language in the organization around appropriate conflict behavior
