Employees and organizations are susceptible to the consequences of conflict daily. The organization suffers from a loss of manpower and revenues as a result of employee conflicts either not being addressed or being mishandled. In fact, the cost of conflict in organizations is estimated to be $349 billion annually. Decreased productivity, ineffective teams, time lost due to use of sick days, stress and lawsuits are the result of individuals, managers and leadership’s inability to effectively mitigate conflict. This course will help you to identify how personality affects conflict situations, as well as identify your preferred mode of conflict resolution. As you become aware of the impact of the combination of these variables, you will be able to analyze and consider the best use of resolution techniques and conversations to suit the situation.
