Don't avoid conflict; manage it. Learn the tools that turn conflicts into positive outcomes in this workshop-style course with LinkedIn vice president, philosopher of leadership, and influencer Fred Kofman.
- Have you ever felt that if you tell the other person what you really think, that's gonna be the end of your relationship? Have you ever stopped yourself from saying what you think for the sake of continuing that relationship? Or perhaps after awhile, you really told them what you think, and then effectively realized that that ended the relationship. Well, if you feel like that, you're not alone. My name is Fred Kofman, I've been coaching executives for about 20 years, and my clients have felt this both at home and at work.
Countless times. And they spent many years blaming the conflict for this dilemma. What we've learned is that it's not the conflict. It's how you handle the conflict that makes a difference. In this course, we'll see that it is possible to tell the truth and keep the relationship, getting the job done. The three things work together. Your integrity with yourself, you create the strong relationship with others, and then you work together to reach a shared goal.
We will look at both theory and practice, with a practical example where one of our coaches, Angelie, is going to be dealing with an employee that is difficult. And yet, the difficulty is not in the employee. The difficulty will be solved by getting better tools. Come join us in this journey.
This course is the first in a series with LinkedIn influencers, a select group of highly influential entrepreneurs, creative thinkers, global leaders, and policy makers chosen to share their thoughts with LinkedIn members.
