Conflict Competence: Health Faculty Series

Presented by UC Davis Office of the Ombuds, co-sponsored by Faculty and Professional Development in the Office of Academic Personnel.

Conflict has the power to lower morale, reduce productivity, and cause challenges for the department climate. However, if managed well, conflict can strengthen relationships, foster creativity, and contribute to a high functioning, successful team. This interactive series of three modules and one practicum provides tools, techniques, and skills to effectively prevent and resolve conflicts. You will learn how to recognize conflict before it escalates, navigate interpersonal dynamics, identify core needs of learners, build trust on your team, and navigate difficult conversations. Participants can attend any or all of the modules.
