Productive Conflict Workshop 

3 Business Acumen PDUs

When you think of conflict, does your heart start to race and sweat roll down your back? Conflict is one of the core behaviors of a high performing team. It is also the behavior that has the lowest performance score among thousands of teams. When done correctly, conflict can lead to Innovation, Creativity, a more resilient culture, better decisions, profitability, retention of staff, productivity, inclusiveness, and greater safety.

If there are so many benefits from conflict, why is it avoided and managed so poorly in teams and organizations? There is a wide range of productive and destructive conflict.

3.5 Power Skills PDUs

Team performance starts when you ask, “how can I take more responsibility for my team’s troubles instead of pointing at others?How can I match my good intentions to my impact so I can be the leader and team member my team deserves?” Only 10% of teams are high performing.
