SkillSoft Topic of the Month: Workplace Conflict: Recognizing and Responding to Conflict

Conflicts will inevitably arise in the workplace, so it is critical to deal with them successfully. If you avoid conflict that requires quick, decisive action, or if you take an aggressive approach when you need to gain someone’s commitment, you may make the situation worse. Choosing an appropriate response based on the type of conflict is important. When you address conflict properly, you can experience a number of benefits, including enhanced creativity and stronger relationships.

This one-hour course describes these and other benefits of conflict, explains common workplace conflict situations and describes responses appropriate to the outcome you desire.
