Being unconditionally constructive means that in a relationship with you, I should do only those things that are both good for the relationship and good for me, whether or not you reciprocate. Being unconditionally constructive is a way to describe the basis for a good working relationship whether it is between nations, organizations, or individuals, and whether the relationship is long-term or a one-time negotiation. It does not matter whether they follow my example; I choose how I will work with them.
Build your conflict resolution skills this fall ! Still space in Fundamentals of Mediation starting September 28.
According to a survey by the American Management Association, managers typically spend at least 24% of their time managing conflict. Based on my own experience this estimate seems low.
What was not included were the statistics about how many managers fear conflict or struggle to manage conflict. And then there is the impact of mismanaged conflict on other employees, on workteams and on the business itself, whatever the mission of the organization is.
Whatever your reason is
Fundamentals of Mediation is an opportunity to build your practical skills to manage and resolve conflict.
Next course dates April 6, 7, 8, 11, and 12, 2016. Early registration discount until March 4, 2016.
