Please join us for our Personal Development Session!


This session will preceed the June Chapter meeting

No matter how much we try to avoid it, conflict is inevitable. In this professional development session you will learn:

  • Your particular conflict style based upon the Thomas-Kilman Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI),
  • Key elements of conflict management,
  • How unmanaged or mismanaged conflict impacts employees and organizations,
  • The cost of unproductive conflict, and
  • A model for managing conflict.

The chapter meeting will focus on conflict concepts, how conflict affects working relationships, and a discussion of five conflict styles as defined in the Thomas-Kilman Conflict Mode Instrument.
