Give Peace a Chance: Workplace Conflict Resolution

No matter how well your team gets along, conflict is inevitable because of differences in personalities, priorities, backgrounds, and preferences.

Davis will demonstrate when to take a hands-off approach, when to get involved, and how to use conflict to encourage a growth mindset.

Presented by: Christina Davis of The LMC Group
