Tara Gronhovd is a leadership and team coach with Align. She’ll lead the discussion on Wednesday, January 3rd, at the Chamber offices.

The average employee wastes three to four hours a week in miscommunication, unresolved conflict, and working around tension between colleagues. You take that times the number of people on your team, (and) you are going to slow down productivity significantly.

The session will cover the common causes of conflict, natural points of tension on every team, and discuss strategies to handle conflict when it arises.

Gronhovd says learning how to effectively manage conflict can help improve productivity at every business.

There's a lot of research that shows when you improve a team's ability to manage and handle natural conflict - the productivity and morale go up (and) trust goes up. And trust is the foundation of all high-performing teams.

Lunchtime Learning is a monthly seminar focused on management training and business success. For more information, find the details here.
