Moderators will also share insights so that attendees come away with information about how to apply their own unique innovation challenges, and how we will lead others to be their own best innovators.

The webinar touches the following concepts: the change process, pain vs. gain, change threshold, the change curve and strategies for managing conflict.
How much time do we waste thinking about, avoiding or worrying about conflict and what does that do to your work environment? Conflict does not generally go away unless you actively manage it.

Attendees will be better equipped to manage conflict in a structured way, apply principled negotiations effectively to focus on winning a resolution and learn to identify their preferred style/s in influencing others and managing conflict and the additional strategies that they need to use to successfully resolve the conflict situation.
