Interpersonal Power Tools for a More Effective Workplace

Course Description

Every workplace has its share of challenges and obstacles. What do you do when an co-worker’s actions are disruptive and causing conflict?  How do you uncover the root cause of the problem to correct the behavior and get back to work? How do you avoid the pressure to come up with a quick solution, which may solve the wrong problem or even worse, escalate the situation? This workshop will teach practical tools to uncover the real problem so you can choose an effective response to eliminate the challenge and get back to business.  You will practice these tools using common workplace scenarios and gain valuable feedback.
