Rising Above Office Conflict: Nov. 17 Training for HR, Management & Leaders

Rising Above Office Conflict is a 1-day, fast-paced training for HR, Management and Leaders.

This training will take place on November 17th, 2023
from 7:00 am-3:30 pm Pacific Time,
with a 30 minute break at 12:30


This training is based upon the brand new book, Rising Above Office Conflict, which focuses on specific behaviors and conflicts in the workplace. Join lead trainer and author, Dr. Clare Fowler, in learning how to be a conflict “fire fighter” through engaging conflict in 3 phases: 1) putting out immediate office conflict fires, 2) setting up fire-resistant policies, and 3) empowering employees to prevent future fires. The goal is to empower you to quickly diagnose and triage conflicts that are brought to your desk. Your job, after all, is not to solve everyone’s problem; Your job is to foster an engaged, motivated and agreeable team.

Dr. Fowler and fellow experts will also focus on how to recognize and handle abuse, create a trauma-informed office, and create a resolution plan with unions and general counsel.

After the training, you will get a copy of Dr. Fowler’s book (Rising Above Office Conflict), access to the video recording of the training for 12 months, and access to all of the resources of the conference site. You will also be placed into a cohort that you may debrief with or brainstorm difficult problems.


Pricing: $149 before Nov 1, 2023. The price for this course includes:
