Program Overview

Conflict is a normal part of our everyday life both at home and in the workplace. Mismanaged conflict has both direct and indirect costs as it decreases productivity, increases problems with morale and increases liability. Conflict management is a constructive way of approaching this natural phenomenon so that the result is a positive outcome.

In this program we provided a real-life approach to conflict management as we addressed specific scenarios, sent in by viewers, to a panel of Human Resources experts. The panel discussed each submission as a case study. Viewers were also invited to join the discussion during the broadcast by calling to talk with our experts. All emails and calls were handled anonymously so that, together, the panel and the viewers were able to discuss successful conflict management strategies.
