Upcoming classes: Conflict and Project Management
Upcoming classes offered in September by UCOP Learning and Development include Conflict Management and the three-part Project Management series.
Conflict Management, Thursday, Sept. 6, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in 11326 Franklin
Learning and development facilitator Katy Liddell presents this class in conflict management, which provides useful tools for assessing conflict situations and your conflict-handling style.
Conflict is a natural occurrence in the workplace, ranging from differences of opinion to patterns of interaction between two people or heated disagreements. When managed effectively, conflict can be used to spur innovation and productive change that supports rather than undermines the organization’s goals.
