Managing Conflict Effectively

Posted to Event by Mr. Michael Krebsbach of Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. Eastern Pa. Chapter at 1:33 PM

Managing Conflict Effectively


Everyone doesn’t come with a “like” button.

Professional harmony in the workplace is rarely as simple as it is online, where removing a connection or unfriending a colleague can be done quietly. When conflict occurs in the physical world, it can create serious communication issues and morale problems, affecting productivity and professionalism.

Effective managers know how to resolve workplace conflicts in ways that reduce tension and let all of the parties involved move forward positively. This workshop teaches participants how to recognize potential conflict, and how to manage the resolution of workplace conflicts, professionally and productively.
