Nature to Nurture
This course examines our bodies' instinctual and learned reactions to conflict. We look at how our brain reacts in conflict, how we can be aware of our triggers, and how we can begin to rewire our brain to change ineffective behaviors. There are three main stages we will move through: Recognition, Reaction, and Role. This is a highly interactive course.

That study revealed the 5 steps an office can take to improve communication and reduce unnecessary conflict (The TEACH method). When conflicts are necessary, there are steps that both management and employees can take to help these conflicts be a positive experience that deepens office relationships.
