Overview - Managing stress at work
Conflict is an inevitable part of life. No matter how hard you try, it can seem that there will always be something that causes you or someone around you to be frustrated, angry, and impatient – or a whole host of other not so pleasant emotions.
Conflict arises when the people we work with have different ideas, perspectives, backgrounds, values, goals or expectations. Yes, conflict can be destructive! It diverts energy from more important activities and issues; it polarizes people and reduces cooperation; and it can produce irresponsible behavior. And conflict can be constructive! It opens up and improves communication; it strength¬ens working relationships and teamwork; and it leads to better quality decisions and problem solutions.
The ability to handle conflict and difficult situations is a great leadership skill. When you are confident in your people management skills, you don’t have to be afraid of disagreement. You don’t have to back away from problems. Instead you can confidently face the confrontation and bring the issue out into the open. Well-managed conflict actually stimulates, ideas, sparks creativity and encourages personal improvement. Conflict by itself is neither good nor bad. It’s the way YOU handle conflict that produces constructive or destructive results.

The focus of this webinar is how deal with the inevitable conflicts, difficult people and situations that occur in the workplace so that it leads to positive outcomes both for the people involved and the organization. These seven points will be covered in managing stress at work:
• Identify the top six causes of conflict and which one produces the most problems
• Understand the iceberg concept of conflict – what’s above and below the water line
• Define five conflict management styles and match each style to different conflict situations
• Decide if you’re a shark or a turtle or a teddy bear or a fox or owl in how you handle conflict.
• Learn how to keep your cool and react in a professional manner in the heat of the moment.
• Learn the language of positive communication to reduce negative emotions, especially anger.
• Recognize the four types of difficult people that drive you crazy and how to deal with them.

Learning Benefits (Managing stress at work):
Time is Money. There are a variety of direct costs to the organization associated with poorly managed conflict, including, in the worst cases, the loss of customers and good employees. One that is visible to everyone is the time taken to successfully resolve issues. Time that would be better spent on accomplishing work and achieving goals is instead used to manage disagreements, smooth ruffled feathers, and deal with difficult people.

When CPP Inc commissioned a study on workplace conflict, they found that that an overwhelming majority (85%) of employees at all levels experience conflict to some degree. Furthermore, they found on average, each employee spends 2.1 hours every week – approximately one day a month – dealing with conflict in some way (being involved in a disagreement, managing a conflict between co-workers, etc.)

For the US alone, that translates to 385 million working days spent every year as a result of workplace conflict. It is also a major drain on the resources of HR departments: half of the HR workers questioned (51%) spend between one and five hours a week managing disagreements.

The crucial issue is not whether conflict, disagreement and difficult people can be avoided; the real concern is how they can be dealt with that will lead to positive outcomes. If managed improperly, businesses’ productivity, operational effectiveness, and morale take a major hit. On the other hand, when channeled through the right tools and expertise, conflict can lead to a better understanding of others, improved solutions to problems or challenges, and major innovation
