Mini-Book #4 – The Road to Competency in Managing Organizational Conflict (34:35 minutes)
In this audio, Patricia Porter explores the dreaded conflict dynamics found in every organization. When conflict is allowed to fester in the workplace, it can quickly deteriorate a situation leading to emotionally-charged reactions and destructive behaviors with long-term negative results. Unresolved and unmanaged conflict comes at a high price. Global leaders and their organizations need to embrace and understand the value of addressing conflict early and managing it constructively. They need to be the champions of developing an organization that is conflict competent in how employees, teams and their leaders engage with each other during times of strong disagreements.
Mini-Book #5 – Dealing with Destructive Workplace Behaviors (27:50 minutes)
In this audio, Patricia Porter explores how organizations who receive ongoing complaints of abrasive, aggressive or bullying types of behaviors in the workplace are often befuddled as how best to approach the problem. The organization’s leadership and HR personnel must analyze the problem and determine the best strategy for the situation. Are the complaints a result of misunderstandings that have escalated to an ongoing conflict? Could the problem be a long-term pattern of inappropriate conduct and hostile behaviors? Or is this a systemic problem involving multiple team members reacting aggressively to one or two employees? We examine various strategies leaders and HR personnel need to consider when addressing these types of challenges.
Mini-Book #6 - The Avoidant and Abrasive Leaders: Breaking the Stalemate (38:30 minutes)
In this audio, Patricia Porter discusses how leaders approach problems and conflict in vastly different ways. Their attitudes, lack of awareness, knowledge and conflict management skills often lead to two reactive extremes: avoidance or aggression. What happens when your organization is led by an avoidant leader? And, what is the impact and consequences when the avoidant leader does not address an abrasive manager?
