Everyone wants to get their way.
In business, where your money is involved, it becomes more important, if not vital. Done skillfully, you can get your way almost every time, without losing a good client or employee.
Conflict is a natural part of every human interaction; not only in your business, but in your personal relationships, and in life in general. The key is how to manage the situation to a successful resolution instead of avoiding it.
In this workshop, you will hear also real life conflicts and learn about practical techniques applied to effectively reach resolution and control.
• rapport building; • active listening; • emotion vs. logic; • improvement; • results.
Although this workshop involves conflict resolution, leadership traits are also discussed and practiced.
