Women Lead Webinar Series
Everyone is challenged at times by coping with conflicting demands and challenging personalities. In last month’s webinar, we focused on strategies and tactics for managing conflict. However, often it’s not so much the content of the conflict that is a challenge as the personality of the other party and how you feel. For example, you know that sinking feeling you get when you realize that you are going to have to negotiate with Person X again and you resolve that this time you will not lose – no matter what.
In this webinar we will delve deeper on understanding your emotions in the midst of conflict along with what it takes to be less “hooked” by those emotions. In effect, this is how not to take it so personally. Granted mastering this may take a long time, however this webinar will help you get started.
As a participant, you will have the opportunity to get immediate feedback on a challenging situation or personality. After you register for this session you will receive an invitation to submit an annonymous case or issue to be discussed by Dr. Wallace during the webinar.
Leadership Expert and Executive Coach, Wanda Wallace, PhD., CEO and President of the Leadership Forum Inc. will facilitate this second session on conflict and handling difficult personalities. Each of these sessions can stand alone but participating in both will allow a deeper understanding and some practice in dealing with this challenging topic.
Be sure to register for part one of this series, Navigating Conflict, Contention and Competing Perspectives.
