"The goal of resolving conflict is not victory or defeat. It's reaching understanding and letting go of our need to be right." Unknown

Whether in the workplace or your day-to-day life, conflict is inevitable. It occurs between individuals who care about a particular matter, but have opposing views. As professionals, and Leaders, caring about your asset, team, and or budget is part of your livelihood. It is understandable that when one encounters opposition, the immediate reaction would be one of anxiousness, frustration or even anger. Instead of backing away from these uncomfortable feelings and avoiding the conflict, this class aims to have you engage, constructively!

Tools and techniques will be provided on how to control your reaction, get to the root cause of the problem and determine an acceptable solution going forward. To avoid conflict in your professional roles as engineers and geoscientists is to fail.

This two-hour workshop will be broken into four parts, with case studies and working groups to cover:
  • Learning how to respect conflict
  • Identifying the source of the conflict
  • Responding to the conflict
  • Finding your solution
