Cultural Differences: Communication Styles and Conflict Resolution

Thursday, March 25, 01:00 PM - Thursday, March 25, 2021, 03:00 PM
Thursday, March 25, 2021, 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM
VirtualLive/Online
Fee: $45 for MCN members / $65 for nonmembers
Organizations have a workplace culture, but each employee brings their own culture to work. This workshop will help participants deepen their understanding of how culture influences different communication styles, which can often lead to misunderstanding and conflict. We will examine different communication and conflict styles and learn new strategies for identifying barriers to healthy communication and managing conflict in the workplace.
