March 5: Conflict Resolution Webinar

Online Webinar
11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Description: Conflict between colleagues or classmates is a fact of life due to differing goals, needs, and perceptions. The fact that conflict exists is not necessarily a bad thing as long as it is resolved successfully. Understanding the causes of conflict and utilizing effective conflict resolution practices can ultimately lead to personal and professional growth. In this session we will discuss:

  • How to define conflict
  • Different conflict styles
  • Perceptions that perpetuate conflict
  • Conflict resolution strategies and skills

This session is presented by The Graduate School.
