alt "Conflict is inevitable in a team ... in fact, to achieve synergistic solutions, a variety of ideas and approaches are needed. These are the ingredients for conflict."
Susan Gerke, IBM, Leadership Development

In any situation where people are required to interact, there is an opportunity for both good and bad conflict. Good conflict generates fresh ideas, builds trust through robust discussion and generates buy-in. Bad conflict disrupts work, creates disharmony for individuals as well as business, and can lead to crisis unless carefully managed. The ‘Dealing with Conflict’ workshop prepares leaders and managers with tools to harness and develop positive conflict as well as recognise and manage negative conflict in a way that resolves problems constructively.
