The Paradox of Workplace Conflict: Learning to Win by Not Winning
Deborah Brown — Director of Training at MidAtlantic Employers’ Association
In this engaging one-hour session, we will delve into the profound concept that the true essence of conflict lies not in achieving victory, but in embracing the opportunities for growth and learning that conflicts offer. Conflict, often seen as a negative and adversarial force, can actually be harnessed as a catalyst for personal and collective development.
During this session, we will explore the multifaceted nature of conflicts, examining how they arise in various ways. We will challenge the conventional perception of conflicts as something to be avoided or resolved quickly, and instead, we will uncover the transformative power they hold.
Through thought-provoking discussions, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics of conflicts and their potential for positive change. We will explore strategies for approaching conflicts with an open mind and a willingness to learn, focusing on collaboration and empathy rather than on achieving a “win” at the expense of others.
