BN360 Skills for Success: Communication & Conflict Resolution

In Upcoming Events, by , on January 28th, 2019

Conflicts often arise when communications are misaligned or fail between parties. Identification of communication styles and the various types of conflict that may result is essential to a positive culture. Unresolved conflict can be as detrimental to the workplace as a virus is to a computer.

With the help of Dr. Jim Mills of Niagara University, we’ll be talking about:

  • What is conflict?
  • Five styles of dealing with conflict
  • Recognizing and overcoming conflict

Join us for connecting, communication, conflict resolution and complimentary refreshments!
