Christian talked about the many different types of conflicts in the workplace and how it affects productivity.Ways to understand conflict and some of its core issues.Two kinds of conflict that was discussed were the Personal and Task; and were does conflict come from.He was able to help the audience to understand conflict by having us looking at the flow of conflict from Desire, Demand, Judgments to Punishment.Examples were given to give the audience something to relate too in the workplace, and how better to approach conflict when it presents itself.
The pause principle was discussed:
·P – Prepare
