Workshop Agenda

Are you having an ongoing and troublesome disagreement with someone, or have you heard a terrible story in your department involving conflict that makes you wonder what you would do in that situation?

If so, not to worry—help is on the way! Conflict is inevitable, but it doesn’t have to be feared or unpleasant.

This workshop is a series of explorations of ways to think about conflict and occurs once each semester.

Part I: Conflict styles and identifying reasons for conflict
Part II: Techniques for increasing understanding and engaging all parties
