The Tools: Using What Is Available
Often the root of the problem is failure to use proven tools – when a conflict goes out of hand.
This module of the program examines several frameworks for determining position and identifying potential points of disagreement. To become comfortable with the models, participants will practice using several of the tools using their real-life examples and experiences.The People: Understanding Who You Are Dealing With
How you say is often more important that what you say.
During this segment of the workshop, participants will explore The Communication Jungle and how to present information to people with different communication styles. This insightful segment is often a favorite as it offers a wealth of easy-to-digest information that is immediately applicable back on the job.Listening so People Know You’ve Really Heard Them – Yes, I Hear You
This seminar segment explores a model for effective listening. I would have listened to you, but I was busy trying to figure out what I was going to say next! Sound familiar? Maybe or maybe not. However, most of us are guilty of a listening sin or two. The good news is when the stakes are low, our listening failures are often overlooked. But when tensions mount, failure to listen well can increase the likelihood that a small conflict or disagreement will grow. Participants will learn how to listen and communicate to others that they have done so.Difficult People: Dealing with Challenging People and Situations
