Virtual Workshops

“Mediating Workplace Conflicts”

Tuesday, April 24 | 1:00-3:00 p.m. ET

Sponsored by

$95 for CUPA-HR Members | $195 for Nonmembers

Many workplace disagreements can simmer for days, weeks, months … even years. Think about the many work styles, ideas, personality types, viewpoints and temperaments — not to mention stress, ego and pride — on your campus, and it is easy to see how coworkers can butt heads. These unresolved conflicts often negatively affect productivity, morale and performance — not only for the individuals directly involved, but also for their coworkers, teams and colleagues. Participate in this workshop to learn about skills and practices for mediating workplace conflicts.
By participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Learn how neutral conflict resolution skills can add value to your role as an HR practitioner
  • Recognize the five key stages for mediating conflict between employees and discover what you will need to prepare for or communicate during each stage
  • Review skills for helping employees work through differences and find agreement
  • Engage in virtual breakout sessions to practice neutral conflict resolution skills
