The management of tension, conflict, ambiguity, and radical difference between ourselves and others is one of the core skill sets of competent executives. This module will help participants map, understand, and, where applicable re-design how they communicate and relate to others in difficult interpersonal situations. Participants will practice how to apply principles of building trust, conflict de-escalation, and conflict resolution, in situations involving differences of perspectives when a collaborative outcome is essential.
