Is conflict blocking your results?Would you and your people like to have less drama and more focus at work? Everyone experiences conflict every day. Conflict in of itself can be very positive. If two parties disagree this means they each care. When they align with each other focusing on a common goal that can be very positive. This is the definition of collaboration. Collaboration by working to together for a common goalis the type of workplace environment everyone wants to attain. Wouldn’t you like to have even a better work environment going forward where everyone is aligned, on the same page and focused on results?
However, sometimes conflict can be negative.Think of customers, vendors, employees, shareholders, management, and other stakeholders. This can be a result of personality differences, culture, misunderstandings, bullying, intimidation or for other reasons. When conflict turns negative this is counterproductive. Relationships suffer, productivity falls and revenues are negatively impacted. Think of the impacts on employee satisfaction, customer satisfaction and business results. Think of the impact on hiring, training and retaining the best employees.What can be done?

With interactive exercises, discussions, and stories major points are brought home. Participants generally know their own material well, but they need to educate others carefully. They need to know what they want.They need to ask for it. They need to give three reasons why. After that they need to simply shut up and listen to others. This is an example of what participants gain from Mike’s keynotes and workshops.
