About the Webinar
Is conflict with clients (co-workers and vendors?) eating up much of your most productive hours? Are you spending too much time dealing with easily avoidable issues? Some of the common hotspots for conflict; unfulfilled expectations (rejected creative), blown deadlines and going over budget can be managed, and in some cases completely avoided.
In this webinar you'll learn how to engage, document, communicate, and listen, so you can make the work of bringing creative solutions to the marketplace satisfying, fun and profitable. And in those instances where your best efforts are not producing the intended results, and you find you just don't see eye to eye, perhaps consider coming to the mediator's table to restore communication and resolve the issue at hand.
- Learn to identify the most common areas of conflict with your clients.
- Learn methods, behaviors and habits of successful collaborators that will avoid and reduce workplace conflict.
- Introduction to mediation –– what to do should you find the need of an outside party to assist with an impasse.
