Wherever there are people, there always will be conflict. In today’s market, more than ever, managers have to deal with conflict in the workplace and it is important that they understand how to resolve them. How people respond and resolve conflict will limit or enable their success. By using the MBTI psychometric tool, we will provide you with tools, techniques and practices to identify and handle conflicts sensibly, fairly, and efficiently.
A good manager doesn't try to eliminate conflict; he tries to keep it from wasting the energies of his people. If you're the boss and your people fight you openly when they think that you are wrong - that's healthy.
