Discover skills for managing emotions in the workplace, helping to prevent runaway emotions, and remain productive and focused toward organizational goals.

• Module 2: Resolving Conflicts with Your Peers from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays starting Dec. 5 at the Rochester Learning Center.

Examine a model for the effective management of conflict that will result in increased collaboration, innovation, problem solving, and productivity in the workplace.

These courses are designed with minimal reading and lecture and with a balance of activities and discussions. Strong emphasis is placed on skill practice and application.
