Resolving Employee Conflicts: How To Handle Squabbling Co-workers, Chronic Troublemakers & Fractured Teams
Conflicts between employees can disrupt morale, reduce productivity and create a generally unpleasant place to work. Because a solution often seems impossible, these disagreements can also drive managers crazy.
The good news, however, is that you do not have to tolerate disruptive workplace conflicts. By consistently using effective management practices, you can restore peace and productivity to almost any bickering group.
Business Management Daily is teaming up with workplace guru and syndicated columnist Marie McIntyre on a webinar that will help you learn how to diagnose the specific cause of an employee conflict – and choose the best strategy for bringing it to an end.
