About the Program

Put two people in a room and there's inevitable conflict but not all conflict leads to destruction. During this discussion, we'll discuss tips for managing conflict, review four resolution strategies, and talk about real world ways to move people away from the conflict and onto action. We'll also discuss Outcome Thinking - a transformational way of looking at communication by Anne Warfield. What's the goal? We'll discuss every PMs desire in conflict - Move from conflict to action - FAST. We'll discuss it all in one impactful hour. It starts July 21 at noon.
