Make Conflict Great: How to thrive in a workplace conflict- August 15th Luncheon

Join us for our August 15th luncheon! Understanding Conflict and Using it!

Workplace conflict can steal time, sabotage productivity, and send our stress level through the roof. Join us as we identify how you, your coworkers and friends respond during conflict. We will also learn how to separate the person from the problem and get on the “same side of the table” to resolve issues. Finally, we will discuss unspoken needs with stated positions as a key in developing a win for everyone. Disagreement shouldn’t be feared, but used to make a great workplace. Join us as we discuss how to thrive in workplace conflict.

Meet our co-presenters:

Nancy DesRosiers has been helping people in conflict professionally as a mediator since 2013 through her business Clear Path Mediation Support. Helping many kinds of clients such as business owners and customers, landlords and tenants, neighbors and friends, as well as families with children resolve their conflicts and come to mutually acceptable agreements fuels her passion for conflict resolution. Her clients are put to work and asked to step outside their typical patterns that are leading to conflict and with her facilitation, they problem-solve together.As former manager of Gallatin County’s volunteer mediation program, Project SETTLE that saves taxpayers the cost of a half-time judge, and former manager and current volunteer of the Community Mediation Center’s low-income family mediation program, as well as a private mediation and conflict coach, Nancy makes a positive difference in our community one conflict at a time.
