Conflict Resolution

Presenter: Paul Loftus, Paul Loftus & Associates

Conflict is pervasive in our society today. In the workplace it exists between and within individuals, groups, sections, units, departments, divisions, etc. Managers now spend up to 30% of their time resolving conflicts. If not dealt with properly, conflict can have an extremely dis-ruptive effect on the productivity, the morale and the efficiency of our organizations
