Tammy Krings, The Conversations that Matter
How much is conflict costing your team right now? While workplace conflict is inevitable, we usually find ourselves either dwelling in it or avoiding it all together. On average, managers spend 25-40% of their time dealing with workplace conflict. If you’re like most people, you weren’t taught how to do conflict well – until now.
The Performance Excellence Network is pleased to announce a special workshop Thursday, February 21: “Moving through Barriers: Knowing How to Have Productive Conflict to Give your Organization Space to Grow and Excel.” The workshop will be facilitated by Tammy Krings of The Conversations That Matter, and will build off of the breakfast she led in St. Paul in December.
At this highly interactive, hands-on learning event, you’ll gain greater self-awareness about your natural, default modes in conflict and how to choose new, more productive ways to respond. We’ll also explore how to hold space and truly work with others when their emotions, fears, and unknowns take over during conflict. You’ll learn how to effectively respond to the uncomfortable and unavoidable challenges of workplace conflict – with more knowledge, skill, and technique. Not only will you walk away with knowing WHY people respond the way they do in conflict, but also HOW to do conflict differently, better and well-equipped with new tools to build greater connection and meaning in your relationships.
While you can attend as an individual, the workshop is designed for teams: some of the discussion will center on how to work effectively as a team, given others’ modes of conflict.
As part of the workshop, you will receive a complimentary, personalized Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict assessment (an $86 value!).
During this session, you will:
- understand your emotional, default patterns when in conflict
- gain self-awareness in how you tend to react and engage in Conflict
- learn how to make conflict more productive by pausing, reframing and choosing a more productive response
- practice difficult conversations using a new methodology — building from courage to connection.
Make time now to learn how to do conflict better and help your organization gain space to be more innovative and efficient.
The workshop will be hosted by Normandale Community College in Bloomington. Investment is $325 for members ($650 for non-members). Discounts available for teams of three or more from the same organization registering at the same time: $300/person for teams of 3-4; $275/person for teams of 5+.
