SBME PROPELS— Conflict Resolution: Respect, React, Respond and Resolve Conflict

Conflict Resolution: Respect, React, Respond and Resolve Conflict

Session topics: 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, 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.
