We all experience conflict yet few of us know how to manage it.  This aspect of life in the workforce isn't always taught in grad school.  Conflict doesn't have to be a bad thing!  This interactive workshop will provide tools and use real life examples and practical activities to support graduate students’ ability to turn conflict into productivity! 

Learning Objectives

In this workshop, participants will:

1. Discuss conflict as a source of fear and possible resource for creativity
2. Identify and understand triggers
3. Briefly develop awareness of the effects and role of conflict styles in effectively working with others
4. Practice effective communication tools and conflict resolution strategy
