About the Webinar
Collaboration and teamwork are the lifeblood of a successful organization. Building a successful team requires stellar communication, effective conflict resolution tactics and strong relationships.
Many factors affect communication styles and strategies of individuals, including age, sex, cultural background, personal communication style and many more. Great teams employ strategies for effective listening, understand the best ways to guarantee that intent and reception are aligned, and know how to provide feedback.
Conflicts inevitably arise in any team. Effective teams have strategies in place to resolve these conflicts in a healthy way. Not only does good conflict resolution help avoid time and productivity being wasted by conflict, it also helps to strengthen the relationships between team members and ultimately create a much more cohesive and attuned group.
