Analyzing Workplace War Zones

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


A team would be worthless if everyone agreed on every issue. The purpose of teams is to facilitate discussions and foster creativity. Sometimes the same discussions and creative thoughts that help the team can also bring about conflict. Nobody is perfect and not everyone is going to get along. It’s important that teams identify and target any problems before they escalate. At the end of this course you’ll have the skills needed to recognize why teams stop working, identify why battles begin, learn how to target team problems, and develop the skills to discuss problems as a team.
