Leaders in academic medicine and science face many pressures including limited resources, expectations for results and complex team dynamics. These challenges, combined with differences in ideas, perceptions, and priorities often create conflicts that are difficult to manage and resolve. During this introductory one-day workshop on conflict management, you will explore how to transform conflict into opportunities for collaboration and problem-solving. Through self-assessment, experiential exercises, and discussions with your peers, you will discover practical strategies for making difficult conversations more productive and for creating a respectful environment in which to resolve conflict.
Who Should Attend?
All formal and informal leaders (faculty or staff) who have not had formal training in conflict management or who are interested in brushing up on their skills.
