We have all experienced the stress that comes from having unresolved conflicts with our co-workers. Conflicts that are ignored or resolved badly don´t go away--they cause people to feel resentful and to avoid each other. The effects on the company are a loss of productivity, absenteeism and turnover.
The Conflict Resolution Workshop goes directly to the heart of this problem. In it, mid-level managers and first-line supervisors learn Dr. Thomas Gordon´s model for resolving conflicts.
