Conflict Competency, Julie Showers
Julie will discuss strategies for effectively addressing conflict. Conflict competency emphasizes that conflict is an inevitable product of complex human relationships, and discourages the common but ineffective desire to ignore or avoid difficult issues. This session, which includes several practice scenarios, will provide practical assistance to those wishing to raise concerns in a constructive manner and to leaders wishing to manage difficult situations more effectively.
Registration required (space limited)
Registration has reached capacity. New registrants will be placed on a waiting list.
