The public sector needs diverse and high-performing teams that can create new and innovative solutions to respond to today’s complex challenges. But, how do you proactively manage the friction that can occur in diverse teams? Facilitator Paul Pringle will help you not only recognise conflict within yourself and between others but use it to build courage and creativity in your teams. Find out how to create an environment where your team is prepared to trial (and error) safely.

Whatever your role – leader, parent, partner, colleague, or friend – conflict can help you understand what you really think and feel, and what you really want. This self-awareness and clarity of focus can greatly enhance your success as a leader.

Come to this Learning Lab and explore key concepts for approaching conflict. Paul’s five-factor model will help you recognise, address, resolve or lean into conflict. You’ll also get practical tools that are easy to learn and use.
