Conflict in the workplace can be incredibly destructive to an organization, and yet it’s far more common than one might think. Leaders are often challenged by the need to address workplace conflict, whether it presents as legitimate difference between coworkers, or aggressive behaviors that have spiraled out of control.
This session is meant to provide participants with a firm understanding workplace conflict, from causes through resolution. Particular attention will be paid to providing attendees with opportunities to engage in interactive discussions around when and how to most appropriately apply an array of resolution techniques.
Each participant will complete a conflict assessment online before the training, and the results will be examined as part of the session.
1. Identify causes of workplace conflict.
2. Recognize why it is important to resolve conflict in the workplace.
3. Identify why and how personal conflict modes can impact conflict
4. Practice methods for conflict management according to the Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Assessment results

BUILDING RESILIENCE, PREVENTING BURNOUT: A Workshop for Your Body, Brain, and Mental Health
The pace, complexity, and load of modern education has changed dramatically. Technology, budget challenges, social media, and demanding residents challenge every employee. The risk for individuals and departments is burnout. Burnout, unattended, leads to safety concerns, poor work, conflict, and eventually, mental health challenges. The best news is that every human being can be taught the fundamental skills of resilience. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from challenging situations and difficult seasons. While everyone has the natural capacity to handle stress some of the time, all of us can learn to reduce stresses’ impact, and as a result, prevent burnout. The skills taught in this workshop will include measuring stress levels, stepping back from reactive people and problems, assessing brain health, identifying memory files that promote mental health, and adding interventions before burnout kicks in. Participants will leave with practical new habits to improve their daily life at work and home.
