When you hear the word "conflict," do you immediately think of the word resolution? Why is it that we are instinctively drawn to trying to avoid and resolve conflict, when research shows us that the right types of conflict are key to being more creative and producing better ideas? As a species we are not comfortable with conflict, but as creative evangelists it is our job to encourage it when it is appropriate. This will help you understand the roots and types of conflict, your personal conflict styles, and give you some simple rules to successfully build conflict confidence (as well as some tips to cool things down when it gets too hot). We will break down the essential components of positive conflict into easily accessible and fun techniques, transforming you into a creative conflict master. You will:
• Understand which types of conflict can accelerate your team’s creative output and what will kill it.
• Learn tools and techniques that can be applied to generate healthy conflict and cool it off when it goes too far.
• Discover your own and others’ personal conflict style – and when to try to borrow another approach.
