OD Partnership Series - Fixing Workplace Conflict

C. DeVere Sheesley         

This training will be conducted live via Zoom. The zoom meeting details will be sent out prior to the training.

This session is part of a new ongoing series offered in collaboration with the Oregon ODN.

As a follow on to last month’s program providing insight and tools for “standing up in a divided world” – this month digs deeper to identify barriers to discord and offer relevant, timely tools to overcome those challenges.

LOCAL, RENOWNED EXPERT Our guest, DeVere Sheesley, and his team at In-Accord, put derailed workplace relationships back on track. Senior managers and HR professionals hire In-Accord when they recognize the need for an experienced, objective facilitator to transform high-stakes or seemingly impossible internal disputes into cooperation and employee efficiency.

THIS PROGRAM You’re surrounded but you still don’t give up. Being a member of an
organization inevitably places you in situations of conflict. There are ways to reduce its
negative impact on you and your coworkers.

The savvy response to the uncomfortable messiness of workplace discord is to develop
keener insights and skills. Through this engaging presentation, you’ll gain easy-to-
remember and easy-to-apply mindsets and tools to be an effective

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the four apparent barriers to solving serious discord.
  • Describe two powerful tools for overcoming each challenge.
  • Learn how to apply the surprising power of objectivity.
