RESOLVING CONFLICTS THE RIGHT WAY 
How to Turn Losing Confrontations into Win-Win Successes  

Interpersonal conflicts are a fact of life. Nobody is going to agree with everyone all of the time. But that doesn't mean conflicts must have a destructive effect on those involved – because there are right ways and wrong ways to resolve conflicts. In fact, there are several “right” ways, and in this seminar you'll take a look at how you can incorporate them into your organization.  
 
Conflict resolution is the methodical process of building relationships and finding ways to achieve win-win results. If you begin by handling your current conflicts better and applying the principles you learn in this seminar, the quality of your relationships will improve and your individual, team, and organizational effectiveness will rise considerably. We'll start the seminar by discussing the startling facts about workplace conflict, what makes some conflict unhealthy, and the symptoms leading to conflict. Then we'll explore how to:
