Communication Skills, Part 3: Transforming Conflict from Dysfunctional to Functional
When you think of conflict, do you think of a negative situation? Growth and achievement is often propelled by functional conflict, but dysfunctional conflict is so uncomfortable that we tend to avoid it altogether. Learn to allow constructive disagreement to lead to increased productivity.
Audience: This class is appropriate for library staff of all levels.
- Reduce defensiveness within the conflict
- Take perspective when disagreeing
- Learn to be appropriately assertive
