Hi everyone, happy Labor Day! I hope that you are enjoying this video from the comfort of your home or maybe after a day spending with friends and family, enjoying a well-deserved day off. Being that it's Labor Day, it has us thinking about the workplace and more specifically the cost of unresolved conflict in the workplace. This Labor Day we thought it would be a good time to just kind of reset and think about your own workplace and if there any underlying issues happening there for you right now. Maybe you have a little bit of an issue with the colleague of yours, or maybe you are a manager or a supervisor and you know about some issues that are going on in your team. We know that it's hard to address conflict head-on, but we have seen time and time again that the cost of unresolved conflict really takes a toll on the workplace. And so, we encourage you, as you think about the week ahead, to go back into your workplace and think about some tools that you might take with you to address some of these underlying issues that perhaps you've been avoiding before. Now, our President Steve Dinkin just wrote a wonderful op-ed piece published on the Huff Post, and you can see it in the feed below. There are some really helpful tips and tools in that piece, and so I encourage you to take a look and see if there's anything useful in there. We'd love to know how it goes for you and, as always, we here at NCRC are here for you if you want to dive deeper into some of the strategies or trainings that we can provide. Thank you so much and have a wonderful week!
