Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict helps participants improve self-awareness around conflict behaviors. Rather than focus on a step-by-step process for conflict resolution, Everything DiSC Productive Conflict provides participants with techniques to curb destructive behaviors and effectively respond to conflict situations. The program features an exploration of DiSC® in a conflict context, provides an opportunity for participants to explore their destructive conflict responses, and offers them a method for making more productive choices in their response to conflict.
The study of resilience, the ability to recover, grow and thrive when coping with challenge or adversity, is a core concept in Positive Psychology. Resilience is universally regarded as an important quality for professionals and is imperative for those working in demanding and high-stress domains. Resilience is teachable, with a focus on concrete skills and practices. This class will introduce participants to principles, tools and exercises to enhance and cultivate resilience.
