"Workplace Conflict: Friend and Foe"

March 27, 2015

Presented by Dr. Backstrom, Ed.D., C.P.C.C.

Workplace conflict is routine. It happens nearly every day with some conflicts being relatively mild and others more substantive. How you understand and handle workplace conflict influences productivity, communication, creativity, decision making, collaboration and much more.

This interactive and dynamic workshop examines:

  • The language, thoughts and feelings of conflict
  • 5 common modes of conflict
  • Ways to diffuse your conflict triggers

In this participant-driven workshop you’ll use a real life conflict situation to explore how you could have handled the situation differently for a more productive outcome. The workshop will leave you with real tools you can immediately use.

Dr. Backstrom is an experienced executive coach and organization development consultant. Her experience spans organizations in the for-profit, not-for-profit and public sector arenas including Toyota, City of Hope, Moog and Caltech/JPL. She is also an adjunct faculty member with the University of Redlands where she teaches undergraduate and MBA students.
