Conflict making your work day difficult? Learn how the best chemical engineers manage it.

In 60 minutes, you’ll examine what conflict is, common reasons underlying conflict and why managing it - rather than resolving it - is not optional, but a part of your job. You’ll consider the different types of conflicts and why some you may not need or want to resolve, especially when there’s a risk of stifling creativity and enthusiasm. The webinar goes on to present various ways to approach conflict, important things to consider before tackling it and hints to guide you through tough situations. Attend and take a fresh look at conflict and how to maximize the positives and minimize the negatives through communication, care and concern.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • Basic assumptions when managing conflict
  • Good and bad aspects of conflict
  • Proven conflict management approaches
  • Ways to minimize conflict
