Conflict in the workplace is it good or bad RECORDING

Conflict in the Workplace: Is it good or bad?

Conflict is an unavoidable and, in some cases, necessary part of the workplace. Nearly everyone has had to navigate it at some point, with less than 1% of survey respondents claiming to have never experienced it.

Failing to resolve workplace conflicts can erode morale and productivity, trigger absenteeism and sickness, and escalate to personal attacks or insults during tense moments. In the worst-case scenario, it can even result in termination of employment. To prevent these negative outcomes, it’s crucial to prioritize conflict resolution in the workplace.

In this webinar, we explore:
– Whether conflict is good or bad
– When conflict tends to occur
– Approaching conflict and resolving it effectively
– Leading through times of conflict
– Changes to conflict in the remote working world

Self-Awareness - Leadership Superfood of the 21st Century

Self-Awareness: the leadership superfood of the 21st century

Presented by: John Russell

Objective feedback can be tough to swallow but it is necessary for the growth and development of leaders.  Feedback supports self-awareness – the accurate understanding of who we are, and how we’re perceived by others.

Research shows that while 95% of leaders believe they are self-aware, only 10-15% actually are. This gap shows that work is needed to improve how leaders view themselves. With self-awareness being an essential capability for today’s leaders, a capability that can be developed, there are many opportunities to turn average leaders into exceptional leaders.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the importance of self-awareness for leaders, what self-awareness really brings to leadership, and tips on gathering and incorporating productive feedback into your leadership development programs.
