Workshop 3 – Managing High Conflict Situations & Discussions– by Kevin Daly

Difficult conversations — whether you’re telling a key stakeholder the project is delayed or presiding over an unenthusiastic performance review — are an inevitable part of the workplace. How should you prepare for these kinds of discussions? How do you find the right words in the moment? And, how can you manage the exchange so that it goes as smoothly as possible?

This course focuses on building skills to help you deal better with high conflict people, situations and discussions.  Course participants will walk away with a conflict analysis planning toolbox and be able to immediately apply it to current workplace conflicts
