Employees need to get along to be able to function and do the required work. This doesn’t mean they need to love each other or even like each other, but they must know how to co-exist. Managers and supervisors need to know how to use conflict resolution tools, to run individual meetings with warring employees, then know how to bring both employees together to facilitate a meeting that creates ground rules for their future success.
The second half of this webinar focuses on how to manage teams and reduce team conflict, using the same concept of ground rules. Teams need ground rules on how they will run meetings, communicate with each other, communicate with other teams or departments, have expectations of their bosses, and meet the expectations of their bosses.
