PROFESSIONAL WORKSHOP EVENT!

INTO THE JUNGLE OF CONFLICT
Presented by J. Lenora Bresler, J.D., SHRM-SCP, SPHR, ASC.

Although people tend to avoid conflict, research indicates that conflict can actually be helpful when it is handled correctly, especially when the focus remains on the task at hand rather than interpersonal differences.

Conflict is a lot like the jungle: it is a place of potential danger and consequences, but also a place of discovery and healing. Success in conflict, as in the jungle, depends on preparedness and having the right resources at one’s disposal.

In this fascinating interactive program, participants explore the four default conflict styles and practice approaches that maximize success. In conflict resolution, an individual must adapt his or her approach to the circumstances. Using a collaborative learning approach, participants work through personal conflicts to prepare for confrontational discussions. They master a simple formula for opening a conversation in a way that will not put a recipient on the defensive, and identify aspects that can escalate conflict.

This workshop provides participants with the confidence and tools to take on the challenges and opportunities that occur within conflict.

During this workshop, participants:
• Discuss the parallels between conflict and a jungle.
• Define confrontation, negotiation, and mediation.
• Explore five conflict styles and predict the outcome of confrontations based on these styles.
• Work through personal conflicts and determine how to distill issues into basic language, identify stakeholders, distinguish the interests involved and outline the pathway to a positive outcome.
• Identify effective steps for conflict resolution.
• Explore various behavioral and psychological components that can be used to bring parties to a consensus.
• Determine common errors in negotiation that can escalate conflict.

After graduating at age 20 from law school, J. Lenora Bresler, J.D., SHRM-SCP, SPHR, ASC, has worked in numerous fields, most recently as a leadership and engagement speaker, author, trainer, and coach. She specializes in helping individuals create great leaders, teams, and relationships through personal development.

A popular keynote speaker at professional conferences around the nation, J. Lenora emphasizes substantive, easily accessible strategies that create immediate trust, credibility, and results. She is the author of three books including her latest, Instant Insight: 15 Questions to Great Relationships.

This workshop is $39 and open to the public; and is accompanied by a complimentary continental breakfast. For more information on this workshop and future offerings, please contact Jeff Clark at (863) 533-7125.
