Fight or flight? In reality, there are more than just two responses to conflict. Each of us, and each DiSC style, reacts to conflict in a unique way. We have our own goals, our own fears, and our own ways to get what we need. This module helps participants understand their reactions to conflict and how these reactions affect those around them. It also helps them discover more constructive ways to deal with conflict.

PLEASE NOTE: Prerequiste - Participants must attend DiSC: Understanding Behavioral Styles before attending this workshop.
