1.1 - What to Expect in this Your SkillsCamp on Conflict Resolution


Welcome to our virtual SkillsCamp on Conflict Resolution.

We all know someone that runs away from conflict. In fact, in my years of experience teaching this in the corporate arena and higher ed, if there's one thing I know for sure, it's that most people hate conflict and that means most people don't train for how to expertly handle something they don't even like. But the thing is conflict is inevitable when people come together to achieve a goal, whether that's your team at work or maybe even your relationship at home. So that being said, we need to be able to handle conflict and resolve differences in positive ways.

So by the end of this virtual SkillsCamp, you will be able to

  • Explain just how much conflict actually costs.
  • You'll be able to categorize different types of conflicts as well as different conflict styles, including your own.
  • You'll be able to understand exactly how brain psychology is connected to conflict.
  • We're going to give you real strategies for preventing and resolving conflict effectively.
  • And I'm going to give you a tried model that you can just fill in for how to communicate during conflict.

Now we know that being talked at forever is boring, so we've made this course interactive and engaging. We've been doing this a long time and I'm going to give you a ton of real examples from real companies. We're also going to give you downloadable and fillable activities and assessments that you can print out or fill out online to really become masterful. Not only will we give this stuff to you, we're going to teach you how to describe what you've learned and we know that online learning can be a little bit lonely sometimes. So we offer online office hours, so that no matter when you purchase this course, you can speak with a real life human SkillsCamp instructor. You'll also see comment threads from fellow learners and you'll be added to our closed group of SkillsCamp alumni.

So if you're someone who's looking to up their game in the most important skills, this SkillsCamp is for you. if you're looking to be a more dynamic employee, perhaps primed for leadership, this SkillsCamp is for you. Maybe you're just looking to improve your marriage. Well, this SkillsCamp is for you too because conflict exists everywhere. There's a lot of value here. The question is, are you ready to take this SkillsCamp?

Good. Let's go.
