BES: Virtual Leadership - The Role of Courage Building in Conflict Resolution
Business Education Series: Virtual Leadership - The Role of Courage Building in Conflict Resolution
You know how sometimes you find yourself avoiding or putting off having tough conversations at work? Or, you keep making excuses -- you're too busy...you're too tired...you'll get to it next week...?
And now, with many employees working virtually more than ever, you're even more reticent to have the tough conversations?
Recent research conducted by Dr. Brene Brown found that
The future of leadership belongs to the brave;
Resolving conflicts requires courage; and
Courage is a set of four skill sets that are teachable, observable, and measurable.
In this BES we will go through each of the four skill sets that make up courage building and explore real-life stories that illustrate the role courageous leadership plays in handling tough conversations and managing and resolving conflicts. You will walk away with practical tips, tools, and knowledge about how to get your brave on and address conflicts more effectively.
