**This workshop is part of our annual Professional Development Series, the 2023 Managing Successful Teams Series

Effective management includes preparing to have important, and sometimes difficult, conversations. This workshop will give participants skills to handle and resolve conflict, and have hard conversations with direct reports, peers, and leaders in a way that encourages employee buy-in and sustains the team through times of transition.
