Conflict is Opportunity: Understanding and Managing Conflict to Create Strong Partnerships - February Educational Program 

Friday, February 19, 2016 | 8:15 a.m. at Petterino's

Most people work hard to avoid conflict.  We do so because we do not appreciate that conflict can also provide insight and opportunities for personal growth.  To create successful relationships, it is important to understand that and use the tools we have to not just resolve conflict, but also to manage it. This session, presented by: Robert (Rocky) Petrovich, will explore the opportunities that conflict presents and the various tools and strategies to better resolve and manage conflict and enhance our roles as development professionals.
