Conflict Mitigation & Team Dynamics

Effective teams are more productive, healthy, and, not to mention, fun!  How do we celebrate our differences and maximize our talents, while staying committed to the work and results our mission requires?
All teams go through cycles of growth and change, and all teams deal with conflict.  In this interactive session, participants will explore the dynamic stages of team development, learn how they may lead to conflict, and practice techniques and tools for healthy communication.

  • Effectively lead your team through all phases of team development—from disharmony to productivity.
  • Apply practical tools and a roadmap for navigating difficult conversations.
  • Create Common Language for individual differences and conflict
  • Build Emotional Intelligence through empathy and self-awareness
  • Understand and apply tools for Healthy Interactions
  • Enhance teamwork through an understanding of Team Dynamics
The course is specifically designed for nonprofit teams (2-4 participants per organization). The ideal team is a group of people who work together on a regular basis, and are committed to increasing their team’s effectiveness. In addition, managers looking to improve the success of their individual teams, and support each other in this growth process are encouraged to attend.
  • One day interactive training, team discussion and real-time coaching
  • Registration for up to 4 participants for your organization
  • A take-away workbook for your use in future progress on the issue
  • A healthy lunch, as well as snacks and drinks throughout the day, to keep you energized

$645 for 2-4 participants per member organization / $795 for 2-4 participants per non-member organization
Each organization registers through one individual, then sends other 1-3 team members (name, job title, & email) to
