Dealing effectively with conflict is difficult for leaders and followers alike. Some try to avoid conflict and wish it would go away, while others tend to get angry and lash out at others in ways they regret later. Poorly managed conflict creates enormous costs in the form of wasted time, turnover, and lawsuits. How can we assess how we currently handle conflict and develop the skills we need to deal with conflict more effectively. This course examines the sources of conflict in organizations, and probes the special nature of traditional adversarial roles, hierarchy, and special interests within an organization. Through case studies, role-plays, and examples shared in class, participants investigate effective methods for reaching satisfactory agreements. The Conflict Dynamics Profile is administered to provide the individual with greater self-knowledge of personal style. Using small-group activities, participants develop and practice effective conflict resolution strategies.

Communication has never been more important than it is today. The world has become more sophisticated and complex and people have higher expectations. At the same time, we all work in a climate of increasing time pressures, financial constraints,and personal accountability. Given such competing demands it is not surprising that dissatisfaction and complaints continue to increase. Much of the time, these complaints and disagreements often relate more to what was said (or the way it was said) than what was done. By the end of instruction participants will be able to describe their own psychological type preferences in terms of the MBTI framework, identify the ways their type prefers to interact, and recognize behavior cues from each type preference. Further participants learn to identify behavioral cues and mental functions and explain how others prefer to receive communication in a professional setting. The session offers the time to discuss and begin to practice alternative ways of communicating with people of different type preferences to flex communication style. It is suggested, but not required, that participants have some past knowledge of the MBTI, although it is not expected that people will have gained that knowledge at Hopkins.

Studies have shown that by holding these crucial conversations well, communications become more open, honest, respectful and problems can be resolved.

The best individuals, teams and organizations demonstrate an ability to engage in meaningful dialogue as they effectively manage those conversations where the stakes are high, opinions vary and emotions run strong- those crucial conversations.

Participants will learn how to diagnose a negotiation or conflict and choose from a spectrum of responses based upon the presenting symptoms. Negotiation cases and group discussion will provide participants with insight in to their own negotiation and conflict handling styles and the opportunity to practice new frameworks and techniques.

Communication matters. It's at the heart of how professional people function effectively. Even people who communicate well typically would volunteer that they also believe they could communicate better. Better and more influential communication can provide an advantage to everyone, especially in understanding individuals whose preferred behavior is different than your own.
This course strengthens participants self-awareness as individuals and leaders by providing feedback on key components of personality as measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and offers a review of how participants can use the cues which they see in the behavior of others to provide insights into what their Myers-Briggs personality type might be, thus providing opportunities to flex their own behavior to more effectively work with others and to influence their decision making and behavior by understanding their preferences for the type of data they normally value most, and the ways in which they most often use it to make choices.
Psychological Assessment: Participants are offered the opportunity to complete the MBTI Step II in advance. Small group activities will be structured around MBTI preferences, and in order to participate fully in the sessions, we do ask that you be willing to share your four-letter MBTI code (although personal scores do not need to be shared). If you do not wish to complete the assessment in advance, or to have your Myers-Briggs type known to the group, please let the course coordinator know in advance. In this case, you're welcome to attend as an observer, but may not receive the most advantage from your participation since you won't have your personal data to consider during discussion.
