    Productive Conflict™

    How Women Leaders Can Navigate Conflict Productively to Discover Innovative Solutions for Their Companies, Teams, and Themselves

    Every major global study from PwC, to Bersin by Deloitte, to McKinsey says the same thing: globally, companies are experiencing an unprecedented degree of complexity, uncertainty, and rate of change. While this creates opportunities, it also comes with worrying challenges. The media is filled with examples of unproductive-and worse, destructive-conflict. The ability to navigate conflict productively can make the difference in creating a company culture of innovation, developing a high-performing team, advancing careers, or successfully negotiating complex deals.

    Beth Hand of Leadership Hand, LLC will bring OWIT members through an exclusive, members-only professional development session in which they will:

    • Learn the high costs of conflict and why, despite the costs, companies and people are not better at addressing this conflict;
    • Discover their own team's or their own unique success strategies;
    • Explore the Productive Conflict™ Workout for navigating conflict effectively; and
    • Learn tips on when to consider and when to ignore cultural differences.

    Webinar attendees will leave with immediately actionable strategies to help their company, team, and themselves navigate conflict more successfully.
