Get Your Team Unstuck: The Hidden Power of Conflict for Innovation and Creativity

5/23/2024, 5/30/2024

10:00 am - 11:30 am PT | 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm ET


Healthy conflict can be a powerful source of creativity and innovation for nonprofit organizations. Too often, we avoid conflict as a means of keeping the peace within teams. The crucial distinction between healthy and toxic conflict is to recognize and work towards an organizational culture that can support creative conflict. Nonprofit leaders must recognize the warning signs of conflict that lead to organizational toxicity. The goal of this workshop is to reframe your understanding of conflict and how you might leverage deep dialogue to create positive action in your organization.
