Leading Conflict: How to “Fight” at Work (Round 3)
Thursday, December 12 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM | Webinar

Presented by: John W. Bailie, Ph.D., Founder & CEO, Leading Conflict

Contrary to what you might think, you need more "fights" at work – not fewer. Conflict exposes our needs, desires, commitments, and fears. It shows us where we are strong and where we are weak. Conflict is a path to personal and organizational growth. For these reasons, conflict should not be simply resolved or managed – it should be led. This is an essential skill for transformational leaders.

Learning how to “fight” at work is not about behaving badly, being hurtful, or causing chaos for its own sake. It's about knowing how to lead others through the uncertainty of interpersonal conflict and find meaning, creativity, and growth in the mess.

You need more “fights” at work because most conflicts are avoided when they are at the stage at which a mild treatment might prevent a nasty infection. You need more small conflicts that are effective, creative, and short in duration.

That’s where Leading Conflict comes in. This is Round 3 in a three-round series covering the nine basic principles of Leading Conflict. The topics covered in this round include:

  • High-Trust vs. High-Monitoring Workplaces
  • Round 3 principles of Leading Conflict
    • Show Off with Humility
    • Seek Problems, not Solutions
    • Lead from the Future
  • Application to Leadership

This presentation, along with each of the others in this series, will help you learn to love conflict and build the skills you need to lead it. You don't need to have attended Round 1 or Round 2 in order to sign up for Round 3, but each does build on the others and fighting through all three will give you the full foundation to become a champ at interpersonal conflict.

Learn directly from one of the world’s leading experts in workplace conflict and relational psychology. Real stories, humor, and direct advice.

A Note from the Presenter:

John W. Bailie, Ph.D., Founder & CEO, Leading Conflict

I'm the president of the International Institute for Restorative Practices (IIRP) Graduate School. At the IIRP, I helped to create an international professional development platform and an independent graduate school from the ground up. My colleagues and I have facilitated the creation an emerging social science devoted entirely to the study of relationships and community. I also teach leadership and conflict resolution as visiting faculty at Columbia University.

My work and research are centered on leadership, organizational psychology, civil society development, and adult learning. Here’s what you won’t learn from my resume alone…

  • I’ve been a problematic military officer, an unprofessional labor agitator, a counselor for troubled teens, emergency room crisis counselor, school discipline coach for urban educators, leadership mentor, and senior executive.
  • These experiences have taken me around the world and placed me in the middle of some uniquely tough situations. I’ve learned quite a bit about the real nature of interpersonal conflict.
  • I learned most of what I know through twenty years of direct eyeball-to-eyeball experience with conflict. The doing came first. The theory came later.

Leading Conflict turns my experience as a senior executive, mentor, and educator into helpful resources for you
