Productive Conflict for Supervisors (#721.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder Credits

Workplace conflict is inevitable. Successful supervisors understand that effective conflict resolution is key to efficient business operations. Believe it or not, conflict is a positive sign that people care about the issue and have energy to put toward solutions. Some of the greatest ideas have come while voicing disagreements or opposing opinions. Learn how to leverage conflict so that you can use it in a positive way within your cooperative. What determines whether conflict deteriorates into a disaster is how it is handled. This course helps co-op supervisors and managers develop strategies for establishing a collaborative atmosphere conducive to resolving conflicts when they arise, helping individuals involved in conflicts understand each other's point of view and facilitate problem solving.
