    If you are like most HR Professionals, you experience some aversion to the messiness of interpersonal conflict among employees. But fear not, this presentation will give you a boost of confidence - along with key skills - to wade into the fray and successfully manage disputes. Your workshop leader brings 31 years of professional resolution expertise together to help you reconsider and enhance your response to workplace infighting. You will learn how people become deeply entangled in conflict and how you can help them find their way back to productivity and restored relationships.

    Participants will:

    • Understand how to be more confident and constructive amid workplace conflict.

    • Learn three ways people become entrapped in conflict.

    • Learn the antidotes to each conflict pitfall and how to apply them.

    Our presenter Chris Sheesley and his team at In-Accord put derailed workplace relationships back on track. Senior managers and HR professionals hire In-Accord when they recognize the need for experienced, objective facilitators to transform high-stakes or seemingly impossible internal disputes into cooperation and employee efficiency. With 32 years of full-time experience, a client roster of hundreds of notable organizations, and a track record of over 2,000 cases, Chris is among the most seasoned conflict management professionals on the West Coast. He has also amassed over 5,000 hours of experience teaching dispute resolution and related skills grounded in his real-world experience. He earned a Bachelor’s in Conflict Resolution from American University and a master’s in organizational communications.

    Chris lives in Oregon on seven Clackamas County acres with his wife, two sons, and other critters. He’s been spotted sailing on the Columbia River aboard Escapade , gazing at space through a telescope and gawking at local birds.

    Lunch will be provided at this event.
