Masterclass Part II: Productive Conflict - Beyond a Culture of Nice:) 

The business landscape is changing. And the way we engage in conflict must also change. Competitors are emerging from the most unexpected sources and moving faster than ever.

If individuals, teams and organizations aren’t able to make decisions quickly and move forward creatively, they will be left behind. At the core of great decision making and innovative thinking is productive conflict.

The challenge is that most organizations seek artificial harmony inadvertently create a “culture of nice” where conflict avoidance is the norm. Unfortunately there is always a direct link between conflict avoidance and poor business performance. People who are not able to engage in the difficult and consequential discussions are putting their teams and organizations at risk to competitors who know how to engage productively.

Now, imagine what becomes possible with colleagues who are able to interact without fear of repercussion and who give each other the benefit of the doubt. They don’t get bogged down in drama, over analysis and political turf wars. Instead, they make decisions more quickly and pivot when needed.

In this engaging and entertaining masterclass, speaker and leadership author Sal Silvester not only offers a mandate for more productive conflict, but he also provides practical tools and tips that will enable your teams to engage in conflict more productively. If you want to avoid the political games, weird tension and lack of commitment that stems from unproductive conflict, then register for this 30-minute, high impact session below.

Masterclass Part I: Productive Conflict Masterclass (recorded)

Overview

Conflict is inevitable. How to respond to it is a choice.

The challenge is that most individuals, teams and organizations don’t spend the time required to build healthy relationships and deal with conflict productively. As a result, they avoid conversations, either because they are concerned about damaging relationships or because they fear how others will respond if they share the truth about the reality of the business.  

You know what results. 

People don’t speak up, the meeting-after-the-meeting occurs, and decisions get revisited over and over again. 

Lack of commitment. 

It doesn’t have to be that way. 

Your people, teams and the organization as a whole can learn how to develop the skill set and mindset to engage more productively. 

Imagine moving from...

  • An overly aggressive or passive approach to more direct, honest and respectful dialogue.
  • Getting bogged down in analysis paralysis to being more more decisive and innovative. 
  • Guarded relationships to more connected and stronger relationships where work gets done.
