Successful Teams and Conflict Management in the Mechanical Industry

This full day program is designed to build essential skill sets regarding our ability to work in team settings as well as how to drive conflict situations to positive outcomes. During the morning session the group will focus on the unique challenges encountered by and between teams in our organizations. Participants will develop individual skills to ensure their teams are more effective in all aspects of their work and understand what it means to be an ideal team player. Individuals will develop the ability to gain trust within the team and create standards and expectations that will allow the team to function at its best. The group will spend time identifying the specific strengths and dynamics of their teams and strategize how to empower their team to accomplish goals.

In the afternoon participants will discuss how ineffectively managed conflict situations lead to negative outcomes when there are failed or missing conversations. Students will learn to apply a variety of strategies to manage conflict in any field, service, or project setting. Individuals will walk away with the ability to thoughtfully apply skills and specific conflict resolution tools to gain positive results and improve relationships. The group will be able to guide themselves and their teams through conflict situations by shifting their perspective in relation to the conflict conversations they are having and not having at work. In addition, the group will analyze the benefits of shifting how they view conflict and be able to use naturally occurring conflict situations as an opportunity to build trust and leverage learning with those in their sphere of influence. The class will also discuss how to effectively deal with difficult coworkers that are often roadblocks to successful conflict resolution.

*Class includes two required team style assessments
