Tension between people at work is natural. Research shows that it’s an inevitable part of working with others: in large, diverse teams, it is unlikely that everyone will always agree and share the same goals. But we can learn to manage conflict to keep our workplace relationships healthy and our projects successful. This course is designed to develop your ability to ensure a well-functioning work environment. It helps you build skills to effectively navigate interpersonal conflict so that it doesn’t adversely impact mental health and emotional well-being—yours and your team’s. It can make anyone a change agent for a happier, healthier workplace!
