Leaders in academic medicine and science face many pressures including limited resources, performance expectations 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 virtual workshop on conflict management delivered in two parts, 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.
