Pre-Conference Workshop
Effectively Managing Change & Conflict in the Workplace - Amy Leslie, Perspective Consulting, Inc.
Leading people through change and managing (or better yet, preventing) conflict in the workplace, are some of the most important skills we can master. This workshop will give leaders insight into their own behavioral drives and personality. They will learn how their own personalities influence which leadership tactics they lean into when managing and influencing others. Participants will learn steps to effective change management, while considering how different personalities view and approach change, and what they need to feel comfortable with the process. Participants will also learn situational leadership tactics for managing various types of conflicts, while not forgetting about the "human element" of the parties involved. Ideally, participants will learn how to create an objective language and culture of understanding throughout their organization that lends itself to fewer conflicts. Learn how to prevent some conflict that bubbles up because of misunderstandings or personality differences.

This workshop is an interactive, hands-on workshop, which combines presentations, group discussions, activities and case studies, and includes a personalized assessment. To be a part of this 3-hour pre-conference workshop, simply add it to your conference registration (additional $60 charge will be applied to your conference fee). Lunch and assessment included in fee.
