Supervisor Training Series II: Conflict Resolution and Wellbeing in the Workplace
Burnout is typically the result of differences between expectations and reality. Many obstacles can create those differences, including absence of time, resources, emotional support, etc. One significant contributor can be conflicts with others. Individuals in conflict are often under extreme stress and are unable to function as they normally would. Similarly, poor health and well-being can trigger conflict and reduce the extent to which conflict is managed in a constructive, problem-solving way. In both scenarios, individuals can find themselves in these difficult situations for a few days or a few years. In this session, participants will explore the connection between conflict resolution and well-being, the proactive and reactive responses to conflict, how to recognize when conflict crosses over to bullying and harassment, as well as strategies and resources for healthy conflict.
