by providing a safe place for team members to be heard while resetting go-forward expectations.

Managers: Meet the challenges of daily leadership with ‘constructive confrontation’
Day in and day out, frontline operational leaders look to bring out the best in their team members. But when employees sometimes don’t seem to want to get along with one another, managers must reset their expectations and share their values to realign the team back to the organization’s mission and purpose. To do that, managers must learn to “constructively confront” problematic performers who fail to demonstrate role-model behavior.
If your team is bogged down with employee disputes, communication isn’t flowing properly and work is likely falling through the cracks. Don’t sweep things under the rug, look the other way, or hope issues fix themselves. Effective leaders proactively mediate employee disputes and demonstrate a healthy willingness to make things better. And that’s the message strong managers want to project to the entire team.
Conflict resolution is a critical skill set to add to every manager’s toolbox. In this engaging session, you’ll learn to address performance issues in real time—by listening to the employee’s side of the story, while holding the individual accountable for their own perception management. Managers will be given the communication tools to build team consensus in changing business environments, overcome change resistance, enhance team self-confidence, and celebrate successes.
Mediating employee disputes requires managers to possess a high level of self-awareness and emotional intelligence—skills that can be grown and developed with the help of a seasoned mentor and coach.
Agenda for Managers as Mediators
- Conflict resolution: when team members refuse to recognize one another.
