Managing And Motivating Difficult Employees: Conflict Resolution Tips For HR
|Date / Time:
It's a given that in any workplace you'll have employees from diverse backgrounds with different ideas, opinions, and personality types. For the most part, such diversity can only impact your organization in a positive way, but differing points of view can also stir up conflict, presenting challenges for even the most level-headed HR manager.
The toll negative employee behavior takes on an organization is more than you might think. Aside from the obvious blow to morale, dealing with problem employees takes time, costs money, and can even escalate into a costly lawsuit if it's not resolved quickly.
Recently, the EEOC sued the Los Angeles Fire Department, claiming one of their employees had been the victim of workplace harassment and that the organization didn't take the necessary steps to correct the problem.
While you can't change employee personalities, to maintain order, boost productivity, and keep your employees motivated, it's crucial to not only effectively manage conflict as it arises, but also to have a plan in place to prevent everyday disagreements from blowing up into full-blown arguments - or even physical violence.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- How to recognize what triggers conflict, including common examples of situations that could fuel workplace spats
- What you must teach your frontline supervisors about managing and minimizing conflict
- How to address issues in a way that garners respect for your organization and gets to the root of employee problems
- Tools for remaining calm in the face of an angry employee
- How to correctly identify what conflicted employees are feeling - stressed, anxious, frustrated, or angry - and what they really want
- Effective problem-solving techniques that will help you create a positive environment where former adversaries leave the table with a mutual understanding
- The best way to rein in workers who are habitually unreasonable or difficult
- When termination may be your best option
- How to properly document conflict resolution efforts to help reduce your legal risks
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn tried and true methods for managing even the most difficult employees from a conflict resolution expert. Register now for this informative event for HR professionals.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
