An Interactive Webinar Discussion:
"How Leaders Can Prevent and Resolve Conflict During Difficult Situations"

Stress often creates a breakdown of trust at work. Furthermore, during stressful times, our focus narrows...

…the range of solutions we can think of is reduced

…individuals on teams may run to their corners and seek isolation or ‘siloing’

…and the risk of interpersonal conflict goes through the roof.

This is a casual and interactive discussion of challenges that teams are facing during the Coronavirus epidemic and how we can understand them in order to produce better outcomes and more effective teams.
