Conflict triggers different behaviors in each person, from destructive to productive responses. 

While conflict can be very uncomfortable, it is a natural and inevitable part of relationships.

Each participant in this session will complete an Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict assessment prior to attending class, so that the tool can be incorporated into the exercises done in the classroom.

When you think of workplace conflict, what comes to mind?

  • Arguing?
  • Compromise?
  • Hurt feelings?
  • Avoidance?
  • Gossiping?
  • Explosive disputes?
  • Subtle, long-lasting issues or resentment?
  • Team members taking ownership for mistakes?

 

Conflict triggers different behaviors in each person, from destructive to productive responses.  While conflict can be very uncomfortable, it is a natural and inevitable part of relationships.

Because conflict looks different depending on the people and situations involved, there is no one-size-fits all answer to making it productive.  Instead the solution starts with you.

This program includes the newest DiSC® assessment tool designed to improve self-awareness around conflict behaviors.  It isn’t about conflict resolution rather, it’s focused on helping you curb destructive thoughts and behaviors so that conflict can become more productive, improving your workplace results and relationships.
