CONFLICT MANAGEMENT Learn to read situations quickly, focus your listening, resolve disputes fairly and work out tough agreements. You will learn to find the common ground and get cooperation with the minimum disruption.

Research shows that managers spend 15-20% of their time dealing with direct face to face conflict. Whether an organization is centralized or decentralized, functional or matrixed, the environment tends to set up natural conflict, group to group. Whenever two groups are formed, conflict follows. Inroads into diversity have brought greater innovation and at the same time increased conflict. Competition has heated up, making speed and agility more important. But the result is more conflict and less ability to provide thoughtful resolution.

PROBLEM SOLVING – Learn to use logic and methods that are simple that enable you to find root causes, provide effective solutions and create buy-in.

"Most people are smart enough to solve problems effectively. Most people know how. Most people don’t do it right, however. They don’t define the problem and they jump to conclusions, or they go to the other extreme and analyze it to death without trying out anything. They also rely too much on themselves when multiple people usually have a better chance of solving the problem. "
