‘What Is Conflict Costing Your Organization?’ with Brownstone Mediation Services at Chamber’s Third Thursday Business Builder

Workplace conflict comes in all shapes and sizes; work disruptions, decreased productivity, project failure, absenteeism, turnover and termination.  Join the Augusta Metro Chamber and TeKay Brown-Taylor with Brownstone Mediation Services on Thursday, February 18 at Sizemore Inc. for a presentation on 'What is Conflict Costing Your Organization?'


Most companies are reactive to the destructive forms of conflict vs proactively responding to its constructive forms not realizing the ability to effectively manage conflict can be a strategic business advantage; thereby reducing associated costs with the fallout of conflict.  During her presentation, participants will better understand the effects of organizational conflict and how to assess the hidden costs, risks, impact on decision quality and basic frameworks for managing conflict.
