Tango with a Bear: Dancing with Conflict to Innovate Presentation 

Why can't we all get along and be productive? As social creatures, we have a powerful need to get along, but that can lead to preference falsification, avoidance, and being afraid to speak up, all of which affect how we manage conflict. Let's talk about the Preacher, Litigator, Politician, and Defender in you and how they come out during times of conflict. We're going to talk about how to disagree - without being disagreeable - and why a drawing a house creates task-based discussions  to resolve conflict fast. Conflict isn't a game of tug of war; it's learning to Tango with a bear.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding Conflict Modes
  • Understanding the Positive Conflict Model and how to use the model in utilizing friction and conflict to create innovative ideas
  • Discover techniques that can help make conflict more positive and collaborative
