Conflict is a natural and healthy expression of our impulse to promote change. Yet, for many of us, conflict is believed to be best controlled or avoided all together. Developing skills to engage with conflict in a positive and productive manner increases team performance and satisfaction of outcomes. This session will look at ways to recognise and work with conflict that may arise when working collaboratively.
