Understanding workplace conflict

By: Jemma Came, Marketing & Programmes Assistant 06/23/2017

According to research (1), having difficult conversations and managing conflict are seen as the top two leadership challenges at all levels of management. We’ve chosen to tackle the topic of workplace conflict at our summer networking event on the evening of 5th July at Somerset House, London.

We’ll discuss how you can resolve conflict and manage difficult behaviours effectively in the workplace and our expert panel will also share their top tips and experiences around:

  • How to pre-empt conflict
  • Handling difficult behaviour
  • Dealing with a conflict within your team(s) when it has an impact on you or others
  • Resolving conflict with a colleague or superior
  • Turning conflict into an opportunity to develop your relationship with others (sounds ambitious, right?)

We'll then continue the discussion over drinks and nibbles. We’d love to see you there! For more information, or to sign up for free, click here.

We look forward to seeing you on the 5th!
